3 Add a beaten egg with a spoonful of flour until well combined, repeat with the other egg. Add the rest of the flour and mix until smooth.

4 Fill the cupcake cases evenly with the batter. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes.

5 Remove from the oven and tray, cool on a wire rack.

6 For the filling, cut out a spoonful of cake from the middle of each cupcake and fill with a blob of jam.

and fluffy. Then add the green colouring until the desired spooky shade!
