Kev's Wonder Recipe - Versatile Cupcake Base

Hellooo...how's it going? Had about 6 hours of sleep but yet still feeling a bit lethargic, maybe I've had alcohol overdose? "Thanks" to my dear big sis - JJ for pouring nice wines into my "Magical Belly" yesterday! Of course, not to forget to thank Machi for her magnificent imported sake from Japan, YUMMY!! Having constant pressures from my fans (as if), I've decided to update my bloggie after a month's time...Yeap, welcome to my first ever Kev's Wonder Recipe post, have to thank JiaJi for suggesting this awesome bloggie idea!

As you can see from the title of this post, it is about my secret recipe that I really proud of...Haaa! I've even got the praise from the ever-experienced baker - Aunty Cindy when her trip to Brissy last month...I will churn out more brilliant and yummy recipe in the near future!! I have altered the baking ingredients needed by referencing to various basic butter cake recipes together with humble baking experiences, let's try it out:

Versatile Cupcake - Basic Recipe


Servings: 12 equal size cupcakes with standard baking tray

Ingredients:
Combo A:
150g butter
140g sugar
1 tsp of salt
270g self-raising flour

Combo B:
3 eggs
160mL milk
1 tsp of vanilla essence

Procedures:
  1. Preheat the oven to 170 Celsius.
  2. Melt the butter and put i n both sugar and salt, beat it until light and fluffy (where the butter mixture is sort of well-mixed).
  3. Sift the flour with a sifter into the butter mixture and stir it well.
  4. Add in the eggs one at a time and beat well (add the first egg then mix them well before adding the next one).
  5. Add the milk simultaneously while folding the mixture at the same time.
  6. Don't forget to scrape the bottom of the mixing bowl to make sure the batter is well-mixed.
  7. Scoop the batter into muffin cups/tray until 70% of the column. Then bake at 170 Celsius for 45 minutes in the centre of oven until in turns golden colour. It is then ready if the skewer comes out clean from the middle of the cupcake.
  8. Open the oven lid to half and leave the cupcakes sitting inside for 15 minutes before taking out to be served.
  9. You can add any icing sugar or any of your favourite fruits as the topping. As for the locals here, they prefer to place a thick layer of sweet butter icing sugar with attractive decorations and colour...


Just like this...Birthday cupcakes for KhaiChin from Samantha's sis...SUPERB!!!
