No one can resist a cupcake! They are tasty and yet simple to make and aesthetically pleasing.
This recipe of mine can be easily adapted and altered to achieve different flavour combinations. These are vanilla with chocolate…..yummy!
- 8oz/225g softened Butter
- 8oz/225g Caster Sugar
- 4 Free Range Eggs
- 2tsp Vanilla Extract
- 8oz/225g sifted Self Raising Flour
- Muffin/ Cupcake cases
- 200g bar of milk chocolate
- Packet of chocolate buttons
Preheat the oven to 180degrees.
In a bowl cream together the butter and caster sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well. Add the vanilla extract and add the sifted flour gradually until you have a smooth cake mix.
Individually fill the paper cases two thirds full as they will rise in the oven. Place in the oven and cook for 15-20mins. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
When they are completely cooled drizzle generously with melted chocolate and place chocolate buttons onto the still soft chocolate to ensure they stick and set onto each individual cupcake. Allow the chocolate to set then serve.
