Vanilla cupcakes

26 Mar

May sound simple enough but I assure you coming across a perfectly fluffy, effortlessly gorgeous vanilla cupcake or even good old fashioned English fairy cake is almost impossible. Not to worry…ditch the dense and dry rubbish and have a go at making these beauties.

What you need:
120g plain flour
140g caster sugar
40g butter
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
100g full fat milk
20g natural yogurt
1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract with pods
1 egg

What you do:
1) Mix up the dry ingredients to ensure they are evenly incorporated, add in the butter till it reaches a sandy consistency.
2) In a measuring jug whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt and vanilla. Continue to mix until slightly fluffy.
3) Start adding the wet mixture to the dry slowly whilst the electric whisk is on.
4) Scrape the sides to ensure they are perfectly smooth and lump free.
5) Using an ice-cream scoop half fill muffin or fairy cake cases.
6) Bake in a preheated oven at 190C for 15 minutes for perfectly golden, gorgeousness!

Leave plain or frost either way they are perfect with a cup of tea, as a gift or just because you deserve it 😉
