Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture has a pale colour and is light a fluffy.
One at a time, beat in the eggs and add a tablespoon of flour with each.
Gently fold the remaining flour. You want to get air into the mixture so do not beat it vigorously.
Get out your cupcake baking trays and insert your favorite paper cases.
Transfer equal amounts of the mixture into the cases.
Bake in the center of a fairly hot oven for approximately 20-25 minutes.
