Strawberries gained their reputation as an aphrodisiac due to their large number of tiny seeds symbolizing fertility.
Strawberries contain more vitamin C than any other berry. They also contain a good amount of potassium, folic acid and some iron and fibre. So strawberries can aid in boosting an otherwise lacklustre libido by providing essential vitamins and minerals needed to supply energy and keep the fires burning.
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Preparation time: 40 minutes plus 20 minutes cooling
You will need:
150ml pot natural yogurt
3 eggs , beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
175g golden caster sugar
240g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
175g unsalted butter , melted
For the icing
125g cream cheese
125g butter, softened
350g icing sugar
14 Viva strawberries
½ passion fruit: seeds & juice
What to do:
Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases and heat oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5.
In a jug, mix the yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract. Put the dry ingredients, plus a pinch of salt, into a large bowl and make a well in the middle.
Add the yogurt mix and melted butter and quickly fold in with a spatula or metal spoon, don’t over mix it. Spoon into the cases and bake for 20 minutes or until golden, risen and springy to the touch. Cool on a wire rack.
In a large bowl whisk the cream cheese and butter until smooth then add the icing sugar and beat again until you have a smooth stiff icing.
Mash 2 strawberries and beat into the icing then add approximately half of the passion fruit seeds and juice, until you have an icing that holds its shape but is easily spreadable. Pipe or spoon the frosting onto the cakes and top each with a strawberry and a drizzle of the remaining passion fruit.
