  • Cakes
  • 125 soft unsalted butter
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp Pimm
  • 2 eggs 125g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp semi
  • Icing
  • 125 g soft unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp Pimm
  • 2 drops lemon juice
  • 150 g sifted icing sugar
  • 1 dsp semi
  • Filling
  • 4 strawberries plus extra for decoration
  • 2 slices of orange with peel removed
  • 2 slices cucumber
  • 4 mint leaves (+ 10 for decoration)
  • 10 muffin cases (use red ones if you have them). In a mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and Pimm’s for about 7 mins or until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, and mix for a further 2 mins Combine the flour and baking powder then add to the mix with the milk and blend for one more minute. Dollop an ice-cream scoopful of mixture into each case and bake for 17 minutes in the centre of the oven. I turn them once and put a small bowl of water at the bottom to keep them moist, but that’s up to you! Cool on a wire rack when cooked.
