Update: 14th April 2014
The recipe below is great if you want to cook cupcakes with a flat top for cake toppers. If you would like your cupcakes to rise then add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder with the flour. I like to sprinkle some icing sugar on the cupcakes as they really do taste sensational! A winner every time.
These are the best vanilla cupcakes ever! My friend gave me the recipe after she attending a cake baking course (she also has a blog: https://halfbakedcake.wordpress.com/). The secret is the ratio between the butter, sugar and flour (which you increase to a measure of 150g) and the eggs (two medium). Fluffy, firm, tasty, golden brown… yum! The cupcake toppers were bought online from http://www.caketopperdesigns.co.uk who I would recommended.
- 150g butter
- 150g sugar
- 2 eggs
- 150g flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Cream butter and sugar until white and fluffy
- Add eggs one at a time and mix until combined
- Slowly add flour mixing continually
- Add vanilla extract
- Divide between 12 cake cups
- Cook in the overn at 160/180 for 30 minutes
