Easiest cupcake recipe!

Hello Everyone~

I've been getting a few request on cuppie cake recipe so I've decided to post a tutorial on the how-to. Hopefully, for those of you that have no experience in baking, this tutorial will help you in making the biggest morning tea event a big success!
This recipe is fairly simple and yummy too :)


Basic Vanilla Cup Cake Recipe

Ingredients (This serves 12 cuppies)

(note: I normally use double this recipe to make 24 cuppies)

5 oz (150g) Butter - softened

5 oz (150g) superfine (castor) sugar

6 oz (175g) self-raising flour

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract


1. Pre-heat the oven to 350oF (180oC).

2. Line a 12 cup cake pan, with cup cake papers.

First pick your favorite cupcake paper color!

Then line them up

3. Crack the eggs into a bowl and lightly beat them

4. Beat butter with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy. It will then look like this

5. Add the lightly beaten egg into your beaten butter. and also your vanilla essence of any essence of your choice.

It will then look like this, the batter will not be smooth yet and will look a little weird, don't worry, when we add the flour, it will look better.

6. Add self raising flour

Start beating all the ingredients together(remember not to over beat after adding eggs)

Your batter should look like this when all ingredients are well mixed.

7. Next step is to divide the mixture evenly between the cake cases, you can use your normal spatula to do this but i prefer to use disposable icing bags to avoid mess :)

8. Bake for 18-20 minutes until risen and firm to touch.

9. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.

10. Allow to cool fully before icing.

While the cuppies are baking in the oven, start making your cupcake frosting.

Butter Cream Frosting

(again, double to recipe if you want to make 24 cuppies)


5 oz (150g) Butter - softened

8 oz (250g) confectioners (icing) sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp hot water


1. Beat together the butter and sugar with an electric beater.

2. Once well combined, add the vanilla and water. Beat until smooth and creamy.

Oh look! Our cuppies from the oven are ready!

I've also colored the frostings and added flavorings to them.
