  • clotted cream


  1. Line a 12-hole muffin tine with paper cases and heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. In a jug, mix the yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract. Put the dry ingredients, plus a pinch of salt, into a large bowl and make a well in the middle.

  2. Add the yogurty mix and melted butter, and quickly fold in with a spatula or metal spoon – don’t overwork it. Spoon into the cases (they will be quite full) and bake for 18-20 mins or until golden, risen and springy to the touch. Cool for a few mins, then lift the cakes onto a wire rack to cool completely. Keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze as soon as possible. (Cupcakes only)

  3. Cut the tops off the cupcakes and set aside. Spoon a dollop of raspberry jam on top of each one. Top with a few raspberries and generously heaped teaspoons of clotted cream from a 550g pot. Put the tops back on, then dust with icing sugar to serve.

Fantastic. Really easy and so indulgent. Everyone at work loved them!

These cakes were easy to make, the only part that took time was building them. They looked really impressive. Will certainly make them again.

I made these because I thought, with the yogurt and almonds, they may last a day longer than a batch of fairy cakes. Funnily enough they disappeared far faster! Wonderful :)

Cakes were light. Used blueberries with blueberry jam. Everyone enjoyed, will make again soon.

oh and I used strawberry jam and strawberry slices rather than raspeberry - next time, I'm thinking of using blueberries - very versatile recipe!

I chose this recipe as an alternative to scones with clotted cream for an afternoon tea as I felt scones would be too heavy. It's brilliant! Very easy to make and a big wow both on the presentation and taste scales! I had a couple left over (it was a very big tea!) and there were fights over who got to take the last two home!!!! Highly recommended!

These little cakes are amazing!!! They taste so good that every time I make them they disappear super fast.
