Everyone loves cupcakes, right!? I for one certainly do and today I thought I would share a simple cupcake recipe with you all. This is a super easy recipe that I rely on all the time (recipe book source) when it comes to baking these cute sweet treats. I then added some sweet tasting vanilla frosting on top with a sprinkle of even more sweetness. Its a quick and simple to follow recipe that everyone needs to know, so without a further a do…
150g caster sugar
150g self-raising flour
2.5ml (half teaspoon) vanilla extract
First things first, you need to preheat the oven to Gas mark 4/180C/350F. Then fill a baking tray with paper cupcake cases. Then to begin all you do is simply add in all the ingredients together in one bowl and whisk until smooth and of a dropping consistency. Then divide the mixture between the cases (the number the recipe will make depends on the size of cases) and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Then after allowing the cakes to cool, you can make the vanilla frosting. I never really stick to an exact recipe when making butter-cream frosting but I suggest following a recipe like this and then you can simply adjust how much you need. Then I used a piping bag to pipe the icing on and then sprinkled over some sprinkles or edible cake decorations and thats it. Was that super simple or was that super simple!?
