2. Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl and whisk lightly. Add the melted butter and fold in gently with a large metal spoon. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

3. The next day, preheat the oven to 160˚C/gas mark 3.Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases and bake in the preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
