Preparation steps

1.
For the cupcakes: preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) 350°F gas 4. Place paper cases in a 12 hole muffin tin.
2.
Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and spices into a mixing bowl.
3.
Beat together the eggs, syrup and butter until smooth. Stir into the dry ingredients.
4.
Add enough water to give a soft dropping consistency and stir well until combined.
5.
Spoon into the paper cases to half fill them and place a kumquat in the centre. Cover completely with mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and firm to the touch. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
6.
To decorate: heat the water and sugar in a pan and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the kumquat slices and reduce the heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the kumquat slices are translucent. Remove from heat and let the kumquats cool in the syrup.
7.
Strain the kumquats and place a few slices on top of each cake.
