Feather-light patty cakes
I've been looking for a great recipe for light and fluffy cupcakes, and finally have got it sorted! These little cakes are feather light and delicious.
2 large tablespoons softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence (plus and optional 1/4 tsp)
2 eggs, lightly beaten at room temperature
2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
3/4 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (fan-forced) and line enough muffin/cake pans for 18 cupcakes. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time. Sift in the flour and add milk. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Place the mixture into the patty cases and bake for exactly 30 minutes. Decorate your cupcakes accordingly, and you're welcome to draw some inspiration from the attached photos.
