Im not the best baker in the world but baking is something that I enjoy doing when I have the energy. The other day I really felt like baking some cupcakes and I couldn’t find any of my recipe books so I did the next best thing.
I googled for a recipe.
We’ve all done it. Hey, there’s a recipe out there for pretty much anything you want to bake.
I had in mind what kind of cupcakes I wanted to do
This recipe is from BBC Food.
For the cupcakes you will need:
○ 110g Self Raising Flour ○ 110g Caster Sugar ○ 110g Unsalted Butter ○ 1tsp Vanilla Extract
○ 2 Free Range Eggs- lightly beaten ○ 1-2tsp Milk
For the buttercream icing you will need:
○ 280g Icing Sugar ○ 280g Unsalted butter ○ 1-2 tbsp Milk ○ Food Colouring (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180°C/ Gas Mark 4. Put 12 paper cases in the muffin tin.
To make the buttercream icing:
○ If you want to you can now add some toppings. I added chocolate swirls to the chocolate chip cupcakes and crushed peanut M&Ms to the peanut M&Ms ones.
and there we have it!
Super simple cupcakes that look pretty good! I hadn’t iced a cupcake in… just under a year so not all of them turned out too pretty but they all apparently tasted super nice! Which is all that really matters in the end.
I also made some plain cupcakes but when decorating them they also got chocolate swirls on them so I cant tell the difference now. Soz.
I just wanted to show you the cupcakes tbh. They’re the prettiest ones I’ve made to date…
