Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
200g self-raising flour
200g any sweet eg raw sugar or white, honey or jam etc
4-5 eggs depending on the size
1 tsp vanilla essence
whatever flavour you'd like to make eg if it's apples (have 2-3 apples, both pureed & cubed pieces) + 1/4 tsp cinnamon, if banana, then mash 5-7 bananas.
Cream butter & sugar
add eggs & essence, mix
Fold in flour and add (whatever) flavouring ingredients
Here, I used 1 cup walnuts, chopped, plus 1/3 cup ground almonds. I divided the batter with nuts into 2, put coffee into one portion and marbled the batter in the baking cup.
Bake at 180 deg C for about 20 mins, depending on size of baking cup, less 1-2 mins for smaller cups.
