BAKING – Easy Currant Cupcakes Recipe

March 10, 2019

BAKING - Easy Currant Cupcakes RecipeOne of my goals for 2019 was to get back into baking and do it for fun a bit more. I fell a little out of love with baking when I had to do it for work. I was producing recipes for magazines and it was definitely work as opposed to pleasure. So I took a little break from recipe creating and now I’m just getting back into doing it for fun. I’m especially enjoying baking stuff with the kids at the moment.

These currant cupcakes took no time at all to make and it was a perfect recipe to make with kids, but would also be perfect for when you want to rustle up some yummy treats in a hurry.

These tasted excellent with a big cup of tea and would also be nice served with a little jam, a bit like a cupcake version of a scone! I’m also thinking of adding a little spice when I make these in the future. It’s a great recipe for adapting and changing according to your tastes.
