Foodie Friday: Easy vanilla cupcakes

Hi all, how's it going!

I have a new baking post for a easy simple cupcake recipe. I have had this recipe since high school and have recently made these for my baby cousin second birthday. This recipe is a throw all the ingredients into one and mix together. It's also adds in orange zest flavour (yummy).

120g butter
2/3 cup of caster sugar
1 1/2 cup of self raising flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 zest of a orange (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 180c.
2. In a bowl (preferably with a mixer) add in the butter, flour, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla essence.
3. Beat on a low for 1 minute. Then turn up to medium speed for 1 minute.
4.Scrap the batter off the edges to ensure all batter is mixed in.
5. Line a muffin tray with paper cases and spoon mixture into each one case.
6. Place the tray in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Let them cool for about a couple of minutes.

Then either eat them plain (like I do) or ice them to your liking. I decorate these with pinkish purple icing with sprinkles for the party.

I hope you have enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments I would love to hear from you.

Love June Robin x.
