I thought I would try the pink spotty cupcake cases today, they are so pretty, I didn't want to pour the cake mixture into them at first, glad I did though as they turned out a treat.
So as the cases stay nice keep the temperature of the oven at 170deg and once you get to 15 minutes just keep your eye on them so don't leave in to long & spoil the pretty cupcake cases.
My recipe is from the cupcake cook book so simple & tastes lovely.
2 3/4 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
200g softened butter
1 3/4 cups caster sugar
1 tbls vanilla extract
1 cup milk
Sift flour & baking powder. In a separate bowl cream butter, add castor sugar bit at a time beat for 2 mins till fluffy & sugar dissolves. Add eggs one at a time beat for 1 min add vanilla extract mix till combined.
Add a third of flour to creamed mix & beat. Add half milk mix till combined, Repeat until milk & flour all used don't over beat as mixture might toughen.
Spoon mix into cupcake cases only three quarters full bake for 15 to 18 mins in a pre heated oven temp at 170deg & hey presto all done!!
It makes heaps of cupcakes so I would half the ingredient unless you want lots, then go for it well enjoy I am off to have a taste before they all go as they won't last long in my house :)))
