TAGlicious's Classic Cupcakes

I love baking cupcake as it is a smaller cake which designed to serve one person, which can be  baked in a small nice muffin liner. Sometime for special occasion, I will decorate it with frosting, sprinkles or other cake decoration to make it attractive. 

Upon request by Hubby, I did this for his colleagues for his farewell to his current company. Hopefully they will love this simple yet classic cupcake baked by Taglicious!



Lovely Cupcakes with a little heart







































Cupcakes (A keeper recipe)
Recipe by TAGlicious 
(Make 30-35 standard size muffin cupcakes)

Things needed:

  • 250g unsalted butter (Leave at room temperature)
  • 470g TOP flour (You can use cake flour)
  • 4 teaspoon of double action baking powder
  • 250g of sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs (Big)
  • 450g milk

Steps:
  1. Sift the top flour & double action baking powder together and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter till it is pale and fluffy using electric whisk/stand mixer.
  3. Add in the sugar gradually and continue to beat it till it turn pale and fluffy.
  4. Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix well.
  5. Add in the vanilla extract and mix well.
  6. Divide the flour & baking powder mixture into 3 portions (estimation), add in the 1st portion into the batter and mix well.
  7. Divide the milk into 2 portions, add into the batter and mix well.
  8. Add in the 2nd portion of flour into batter and mix well.
  9. Add in the 2nd portion of milk into the batter and mix well
  10. Add in the last portion of flour into the batter and mix well. The batter should be thick and smooth.
  11. Scoop the mixture into the muffin cups. I used a ice-cream scoop. 1 scoop = 1 muffin cup size.
  12. Finally, put them into a pre-heated oven at 170C and bake it for 16-20mins or till the top is brown.
  13. Place the hot cupcakes on the wire rack for it to cool down before frosting.
