    3 eggs
    125ml buttermilk
    225g self-raising flour
    2 tsp ground ginger

    Rhubarb compote:
    250g Rhubarb, trimmed and cut into small pieces
    60g Chelsea Icing Sugar
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1/3 cup water ( I add a little pink food colouring)


    Preheat oven 170c. Put baking cups in muffin tray.
    Beat butter and sugar till pale and fluffy. In another bowl lightly whisk eggs and add the buttermilk.
    Slowly add egg mix to butter and sugar. Sift flour and ginger into mix and fold together to combine.
    Put batter into baking cups and bake 20-25mins or until skewer comes out clean.

    Place all ingredients in small pan, heat gently until boiling point then simmer. Bubble and reduce for a few minutes until the Rhubarb is soft and liquid is syrupy.
    Leave to cool completely.

    Scoop out middle of cupcake with a teaspoon and fill with rhubarb compote.
    Ice with Vanilla Butter cream and decorate ( I like to use a bit of crystalised ginger to decorate)
