How to bake something in the oven without the nappies.. CUPCAKES!!

You want to always measure your ingredients beforehand when making yummy food for baking! I like to pre-measure and weigh because you can’t help be like.. YEAH! When you pour in that ready-to-use-flour!

You will need:
• 110g (1/2 cup) butter (room temp so pop in the microwave for 10-15 seconds)
• 110g (1/2 cup) Sugar (they always say caster but I just use granulated)
• 110g (1/2 cup) Self raising flour
• 1-2 tablespoons of milk
• 2 large eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• Marshmallow fluff
• Flavourings (I used powdered coconut, strawberry flavouring, lemon flavouring and marshmallow fluff).
• Decorations

You want to put the cake cases in the cupcake tray

Grab the butter and put it in a bowl

..You want to then get your vanilla extract and add this in

In a separate bowl, whisk not one but two eggs..

Grab your flour and sieve this in as well as the milk..

And the mixture will look like this..

You then want to grab an empty clean bowl and the mixture..

And grab your flavouring (I’m using coconut powder first) which, I’ll stir in (I used 2 teaspoons)

20130321-152129.jpg

Stir this in well and make sure it’s not lumpy and then pour into your cupcake cases

Grab the rest of your flavourings and do the same

For the marshmallow fluff I added about a heaped tablespoon and although its squire clumpy, remove most of the clumps using the back of the spoon

Pop the whole tray in the middle shelf of the oven..

20130321-152217.jpg

The recipe I was following said 12-15 minutes but mine took around 20mins to bake

Remove them when they look like this. The marshmallow fluff ones will feel very soft but they’ll set

For an extra bit of something, I dug out the centre of a few with a sharp knife, filled it with marshmallow fluff and decorated
