Fudge and Raisin Cupcakes

Last week, during my easter holidays, I got bored so decided to bake some cupcakes! I'm a big lover of fudge and had some left over, which I couldn't face after all the easter chocolate. I'll start off with the ingredients:
Makes 10 cupcakes
115g of vanilla fudge in small chunks
1 tbsp of milk
85g of butter
40g of light brown sugar
1 large egg
100g of self-raising flour
25g of raisins

Right to start I melted most of the fudge (leave some to decorate on top) in a heatproof bowl with the milk set over a saucepan of gently simmering water and leave until the fudge has melted. Then Take off the heat to cool down Like so:

Mine took aggeesss to melt, coz the fudge was quite hard and I didn't cut them into small chunks, word of warning for everyone! Plus it gets stuck to the bowl like you wouldn't believe, the only downside of baking is the washing up :(

Then mix the butter and sugar together. Add in the egg and flour and finally fold in the raisins and fudge. Like so:

We didn't have any raisins so I used sultanas instead, which my mum said were the same as raisins, but I'm not totally sure......

Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases and scatter the remaing fudge bits on top. Bake in a pre-heated oven around 190⁰C/ 375⁰F/Gas Mark 5 for 15-20 mins then wallah!

I got good compliments from my family and my top cupcake taster, Katy, my friend from work who actually has her own blog Katy Bakes so if I got her approval then they must have been good!

Hope you enjoy making these really easy and yummy cupcakes!
