Preparation time:
15 minutes

Cooking time:
15 minutes

Oven temperature: 180 C / Gas mark 4
16 Cup Cakes


Cup Cake

125g/ 5oz Glutafin Select White Mix
1 x 5ml tsp Gluten-free baking powder
110g/ 4oz Soft dark brown sugar
110g/4oz butter
2 Medium eggs
2 x 15ml tbsp Cocoa powder
2 x 5ml tsp Coffee granules dissolved in 1 x 15ml tbsp hot water
1 x 15ml tbsp Milk


50g/ 2oz Butter at room temperature
125g/ 5oz Icing sugar (sieved)
1 x 5ml tsp Coffee granules dissolved in 1 x 15ml tsp warm water
1 x 15ml tbsp Cocoa powder


1.Place paper cases into cup cake oven trays. Put all the cup cake ingredients into a medium size bowl and beat together for 2 minutes using an electric whisk. Divide the mixture between the paper cases. Bake until the cup cakes have risen and are just firm to the touch.
2.Place cooked cup cakes on a cooling tray whilst preparing the icing. Place the butter into a medium size mixing bowl with the dissolved coffee and cocoa powder. Gradually beat in the icing sugar to make a smooth icing.
3.For best results place icing into a piping bag with a small star nozzle fitted. Using a sharp knife cut out mini cones of sponge from each cup cake. Pipe icing into the centre into a spiral and place sponge cone back on top. Alternatively place icing into each cup cake cavity using a teaspoon but this is considerably more fiddly.
4.Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
