Snuggly Sundays: How To Make Cupcakes.

Now that winter is swiftly on its way you’ll be spending a lot more time snuggled inside in the warmth and what better way to spend your Snuggly Sundays than to make cupcakes. Here is a quick and easy step to step guide to make 12 cupcakes.


Start by gathering all your ingredients. You will need:
– 100g butter/margarine
– 100g caster sugar
– 100g self raising flour, sifted
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)

STEP 1: Pre heat the oven to 180 o, gas mark 4, and fill a baking tray with 12 cupcake holders.

STEP 2:  Use an electric wisk or wooden spoon to beat the sugar and the butter together until light and fluffy.

STEP 3: Add the eggs one at a time beating them into the mixture well before adding the other one. At this stage add the vanilla essence if you have chosen to use it.

STEP 4:  Carefully fold in the flour adding little bits at a time. Do this until the mixture is creamy and there is no visible flour.

STEP 5: Now that the mixture is ready. Distribute evenly in to the cupcake casings and place into the oven to bake for 10-20 minutes. After 10 minutes check on the cupcakes and push a cocktail stick into the centre of each cake. If the stick comes out wet then put back in the oven for another 10 minutes.

This is the most fun part you can personalise your cupcakes or you can just make a plain icing using some icing sugar and a dribble of water.
