Orange Cupcakes with Marmalade Icing for a Grumpy Day
2 whole oranges, divided. Try not to buy bitter oranges. Blood oranges may be useful to squeeze out frustration.
8 oz butter, melted. Use the fire of your righteous anger to melt the butter if a pot isn’t handy.
3 whole eggs. Plus an additional three to break therapeutically by throwing at the wall.
8 oz sugar. Add more sugar if life needs a little sweetening.
8 oz self-esteem-raising flour
3 tbsp marmalade
3 tbsp orange zest
8 oz self-raising flour
1 oz caster sugar. Can be licked off spoon.
1 egg. Budget for four eggs if working with under-sevens.
1 pint full cream milk. 10 oz for recipe, plus one glass to be taken with results.
Pinch of salt. This is a small amount of salt, Issy. Tinier than your little finger. Not too much! Not! Oh. That’s too much. Never mind.
