Firstly, I apologise for the daily lack of posts. A lot has been on our writers’ minds at the moment so we have been caught up in life. We are working to bring in more authors so thank you for your kind understanding!

Back to the post. I don’t even like cupcakes in the first place but out of all the things my niece, Athena could have requested, she asked for this so I simply used ratios to determine the cupcake and buttercream recipe.

INGREDIENTS : 
(for cupcake)
55 g of  salted butter
55 g of plain flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp of vanilla essence
55g of castor sugar
1 tbsp of milk
1 tbsp of strawberry jam

(for buttercream) 
2 tbsp of strawberry puree
70 g of butter
120 g of Icing Sugar

RECIPE :

(for cupcake)
PREHEAT to 180C
CREAM butter and sugar
BEAT in egg and vanilla essence
ADD milk and jam
FOLD in flour
POUR in muffin tin
BAKE for 10 minutes

(for buttercream)
CREAM butter and icing sugar
ADD strawberry puree
MIX well

Well, despite that cheeky smile on her face, she didn’t enjoy the cupcake as much as she would have wanted since she expected it to be lighter and more fluffy. Perhaps I should use buttermilk and yoghurt in my cupcake recipe instead.

I know some of you out there are cupcake enthusiasts so do let me know if you have a brilliant cupcake recipe to share!
