Everyone should have a basic cupcake recipe in their recipe book. This cupcake recipe is as simple as it gets, but it is far from boring.
Cupcakes are a great place to start for bakers because they are a lot more forgiving than cakes while still tasting delicious.
Personally, I much prefer cooking to baking, but with young kids who adore desserts and sweet treats then I thought I would come up with this cupcake recipe so my kids could join in with me when baking.
The best part about this recipe is that it is completely customisable. This recipe contains no flavouring to allow for the addition of any preferred extracts.
Vanilla extract, coconut extract, and even peppermint extract are all good flavourings.
This cupcake recipe yields approximately 12 cupcakes. They’re ideal for birthdays, summer fetes, and bake sales. I love making these for my kids to take to school. They always go down a treat!
The creaming of the butter and sugar at the start of this recipe is the most important part.
It adds air to the mixture, resulting in light and fluffy cupcakes.
This cupcake recipe is ideal for inexperienced bakers or for baking with children. Trust me, I have baked this on many occasions with my kids and it is always a winner.
It is very quick to make because it only requires six ingredients, the majority of which will be found in your kitchen pantry.
Different brands of salted butter contain varying amounts of salt, so this recipe calls for unsalted butter. If salted butter is used, the final flavour of the cupcakes may be affected.
Try to avoid using salted butter, but if that’s all you have, these cupcakes will still work.
The best thing about these cupcakes is that they can be paired with any icing or eaten plain with a cup of hot tea or coffee. Personally, I love to enjoy mine with a cup of desi tea.
Whipped cream or buttercream frosting are popular options, but there are so many other options available besides these traditional icings.
This easy cupcake recipe is ideal for baking with children at home. It’s tasty enough to eat plain, but you can add your choice of frosting and decorations.
