Chelsea Sugar recipe


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 180°C Well grease or oil spray 12 paper cupcake cases and sprinkle the sides and base with sugar.
  2. 2. Beat eggs with an electric mixer or whisk until pale and fluffy. Slowly, one tablespoon at a time, add the sugar and continue beating. Fold in the flour and baking powder and stir in the vanilla.
  3. 3. Pour into the prepared cake tin or cupcake cases. (These stand up beautifully if placed in a muffin tin.) Sprinkle extra sugar lightly over the cupcake surfaces and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. 4. The top should be crackled golden and crusty - cool on a wire rack.
