My Strawberry Cheesecake Cup Cakes

For my Mum, this mother's day I decided that Leo and I would make some cakes and I was looking for something a but different to try out so I headed straight to Jenny's blog (Mummy Mishaps) to see what unusual ideas she'd come up with recently. As you'd expect from someone who loves her cake, Jenny didn't let me down, and I decided to give her 'Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes' a go.

You need...

For the cakes
100g self raising flour
100g sugar
75g butter
1/4 tsp baking powder
25g cream cheese
1 egg, 1 egg yolk, 1 egg white
6 digestive biscuits made into crumbs (I used rich tea biscuits)
1 tbsp strawberry jam

For the topping
300g icing sugar
50g butter
100g cream cheese
1tbsp strawberry jam

Strawberries and more biscuit crumbs to decorate

Whisk the egg white until it forms soft peaks and set aside for later.
Mix the butter, sugar and cream cheese until creamy, then add the flour, baking powder, egg and egg yolk, mixing until all well combined.
Fold in the jam and egg white.

Place about a teaspoon of biscuit crumbs into each cake case and top with the cake mixture.
Cook for about 20 minutes (180c preheated oven)

Whilst cooking you can make the cream cheese topping - mix the butter, cream cheese and icing sugar until creamy and add the jam.
When the cakes are cooked and completely cooled pipe (or spread) the frosting onto the cakes, topping with a sprinkle of biscuit crumbs and strawberries.
