  6. 1 ½ cups (225g) self-raising flour, sifted
  7. ¾ cup (180ml) milk

Method - Cupcakes

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160°C (fan forced). Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with cupcake cases.

  2. Step 2

    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, sugar and Vanilla Extract until light and fluffy - be patient as this will take about 5+ minutes. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition.

  3. Step 3

    Add coconut, flour and milk, mixing until combined. Fold through raspberries.

  4. Step 4

    Fill cupcake cases with 1/3 cup of batter, then bake for 20-22 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Method - Buttercream

  1. Step 1

    In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, icing sugar and Vanilla Bean Paste until lightened in colour, about 5 minutes. Add Raspberry puree and mix to combine.

  2. Step 2

    Place buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large round piping tip. Pipe onto cupcakes, top with half an iced vovo and a light sprinkle of desiccated coconut.

“These beauties popped up in my feed this morning thanks to @queenfinefoods. Naturally we had to make them! Already had some iced vovos in the pantry so it was meant to be! Adapted the recipe to use the Thermomix very easily.”

“Ella Rose is visiting for the night and she was very happy that I saved the first 2 @queenfinefoods baking challenges for 2020 so she could help me make them! We’ve been cooking together since she was a teeny toddler, sitting on my mum’s kitchen bench helping to mix and measure (and lick the bowl!) 💜 and now she’s in high school and did most of the steps and even got to pipe the icing 🤣
