Method

To make the cakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 C and line a muffin tray with papers.
  2. Press the raspberries through a sieve into bowl, leaving behind all the seeds and pulpy bits. You should end up with a thick raspberry goo.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together.
  4. Stir the baking powder and flour together. Add a tablespoon of the mix with each egg and beat in 1 at a time.
  5. Stir in the rest of the flour and about 50ml of the raspberry goo. Add about half of the rest of the goo and fold in to make a marble effect.
  6. Divide between the 12 cakes and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown on top.
  7. Cool on a rack.

To make the icing:

  1. Beat the butter to soften it.
  2. Sift the icing sugar into the bowl and mix a little. Add the prosecco and beat until smooth.
  3. Pipe onto your cakes and sick a fresh raspberry on top.

If you want to use the leftover raspberry goo then add some icing sugar to sweeten and you could use it as an ice cream sauce.
