Preheat the oven to 180°c/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
In a small bowl, add the ground linseed and water. Mix well and set a side for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, using a mixer/hand mixer, cream (beat) the fat and sugar. Add the flaxseed paste and vanilla extract and mix again. Sieve in the flour and baking powder and add the plant based milk. Slowly beat until well combined. Mix on faster speed until the cake batter is light and creamy.
Divide the mixture into 6 cupcake cases and bake (middle shelf of oven) for 25-30 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
Once cool, scoop out a hole in the centre of each cupcake and fill with jam.
In a separate bowl, sift the icing sugar and add cream, whip to a stiff peak.
Decorate cupcakes with cream and garnish with fresh berries.
