Ingredients

For the Cupcakes:

150 ml pot natural yoghurt
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
175 g golden caster sugar
140 g self-raising flour
100 g ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder
a good pinch of salt
175 g butter melted
75 g raisins

For Decoration:

Smarties or M&Ms for eyes
chocolate buttons for ears
Jelly Tots for nose
tubes of black Writing Icing (available in small tubes in most supermarkets)
Method
  1. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases and heat the oven to 190C / 170 C fan. Put the yoghurt, eggs and vanilla in a jug and mix together. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, ground almonds, baking powder and salt and make a well in the centre. Pour in the yoghurt mix and the melted butter and quickly fold in the ingredients but take care not to over mix. Finally, toss the raisins in a little flour and fold into the mixture.
  2. Spoon the batter into the paper cases. The will be quite full and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until risen and springy to the touch. Cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. To decorate, attach the Smartie or M&M eyes using a blob of Writing Icing and add a Jelly Tot for the nose. Fill in the pupils with Writing Icing and stick on chocolate buttons for the ears.
