These delicious raspberry cupcakes are really simple to make. Using a quick, all in one method you can make these cakes in no time at all. Decorate with homemade buttercream and fresh raspberries to make them look the part. Each cupcake has fresh raspberries in the sponge too which gives them a deliciously sweet bite. Drizzle in raspberry coulis to make them even sweeter. Our baking blogger Maxine Owen made this recipe as part of her baking around the world blog.
