For the batter:
For the frosting:
Ready Eddie? Let’s get cracking! Whisk together your flour and baking powder and set aside. Combine sugar, eggs, mayo, courgette and vanilla bean paste until you get a creamy, fluffy consistency. Gently stir in flour mixture.
Weigh 50g of batter into each cupcake case and bake on 180°c for 30 minutes until golden brown.
Get all your light icing ingredient together in a big bowl and whisk on medium speedy until stiff peaks form (about 2 minutes solid whisking.)
Using a 1M JEM piping nozzle (or your favourite alternative), spoon your frosting into your prepared piping bag and swirl onto your cupcakes. Et voila! Give it go and let us know how you get on.
P.S. Top tip: Make your guests guess whats in these bad boys – bet they’ll never be able to tell they’re low fat and made with light mayo.
