Once you have the basic tools for baking, here's a simple recipe you can try it out. Everyone now is talking about cupcakes. It is can be very beautiful as well as cute depending on the design of the cupcakes.

We at BlushBerry gives it a try so that we can share with you this wonderful experience.

Ingredients

1. 140 gm butter
2. 120 gm castor sugar
3. 2 eggs
4. 8 tbsp milk
5. 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
6. 200 gm shifted flour
7. 2 tsp baking powder




Method



1. Beat butter untill soft then add in the castor sugar and beat again at medium speed.
2. Add eggs one at a time then add the vanilla essence then the milk. Beat till well incorporated.
3. Add in the shifted flour with baking powder and beat at a slower speed.

5. Fill the muffin cups with batter.


6. We added a touch of chocolate chips into the batter by dropping a pinch of 5 chips in each batter!
7. Preheat oven or microwave oven at 180 degrees and bake for about 25 mins. Do a skewer test after 15 mins. If the batter is cooked, the cupcakes are ready even though its not 25 mins yet.




Tips: If you are using a microwave oven, put a bowl of water in the middle so that there will be moisture in the cupcakes. This is because, microwave oven adsorb water when cooking, thus your cupcakes will be very dry.


Have fun girls!
