We went visiting today… bringing these fairycakes which were decidedly “short” (buttery, like shortbread) Then I realised I had overdone the butter ratio… something I must definitely do again, once I taste-tested them with a hot cup of tea!!
Choc Chip Fairycakes (with added tasty cholesterol, ha ha)
In my “vintage” Kenwood mixer (best auction buy ever) I tossed in 250g butter, approx 225g caster sugar and whizzed up til fluffy. I cracked in 2 eggs, then approx 225g of self-raising flour. It all looked a bit dry, so I added approx 3 tablespoons of milk, 1 twirl bar and 1 dairymilk (for good measure) I got 36 decent buns from this mixture, not that you would know since my hungry savages scoffed most of them before we got out to the car…
triewd and tested and tasted, they were delicious thank you .
