Orange Butter Cupakes

As l have become slightly obsessive with baking, l decided l needed a break from the kitchen. I had been doing really well all day, but alas with the kids in bed, my husband working and nothing on TV the kitchen was calling my name.

I had some oranges that needed to be used so l decided to make some Orange Butter Cupcakes with Orange Cream Cheese Icing.

90g Butter, softened
90g Cream Cheese, softened
2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
2/3 cup (150g) Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1/3 cup (50g) self-raising flour
1/2 cup (75g) plain flour

Pre-Heat Oven to moderate (180'C /160'C fan-forced). Line 12 standard muffin pan with paper cases. 
Beat butter, cheese, rind, sugar and eggs in small bowl with electric beaters until light and fluffy.
Beat in flours on low speed until just combined.
Divide mixture among cases and smooth surface.
Bake for 20 mins and cool on wire rack.
