I have never had a blog before and I wasn’t sure where to start. Should I just jump straight in and post my creations or should I move a bit slower and start with the basics?
I decided as a tester to make sure I knew how to work this blog (tech is not my thing) I would post a very basic recipe first. This is the recipe I use for all my cupcakes, it is foolproof and I get perfect cupcakes every time.
This recipe makes 12.
125g self-raising flour
1 tbsp baking powder
125g caster sugar
125g unsalted butter
2 medium eggs
- Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan oven) gas mark 6. Line a cupcake/muffin tin with 12 cupcake cases
- Put the flour, baking powder, sugar, butter, eggs and milk into a mixture bowl and beat with a hand-held electric whisk or until the mixture is pale and very soft. Half fill each paper case with the mixture.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Transfer onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
