Roo’s Spiced Apple & Prune Cupcakes


  • 100g dried prunes (or tinned prunes drained)
  • 150g dairy-free margarine (check soya-free if important)
  • 70g coconut sugar
  • 2 medium free range eggs
  • 150g The Free From Fairy Free-from Wholegrain Plain Flour - £5.00
  • 1½ tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 150g peeled and finely chopped cooking apple (like Bramley)
  • 12 small balls of marzipan (optional)

How to make

  1. If using dried prunes place them in a saucepan with around 25ml of water and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and blend, adding a little water to create a thick purée. If using tinned prunes, drain them and blend them into a thick purée.

  2. Cream together the margarine and sugar until pale and fluffy.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients (including the prune purée) except for the chopped apple and whisk until combined.

  4. Gently stir the chopped apple through the mixture.

  5. Divide the mixture between 12 muffin cases placed in a muffin tray.

  6. Finally, if using, poke the marzipan balls gently into the top of the mixture.

  7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C, 160°C fan oven, gas mark 4 for around 20 minutes or until golden and springy to the touch.
