- 100g/4oz softened butter or margarine
- 100g/4oz caster sugar
- 2 medium size eggs
- 2-3 drops Dr Oetker natural vanilla extract
- 75g/3oz self-raising flour, sieved
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then gradually beat in the eggs and the vanilla extract. If the mixture starts to curdle, add a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour with a metal spoon.
Place spoonfuls of the mixture into the paper cake cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch.
Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
