Cooking Made Easy: Cupcakes


As some of you saw on Instagram, I got my sister a cupcake maker for her birthday. We couldn't but try it the same day and I was really surprised by how easy it was making good cupcakes. I decided to share my experience with you and even if you don't want to buy a cupcake maker you can try the recipe in the oven with regular paper baking pans.

What you'll need for 16 mini cupcakes:
2 eggs
145g brown sugar
1/2 sachet vanilla sugar
145g flour
1/2 sachet baking powder
1 pinch salt
65g melted butter
(optional:
16 paper baking pans
cocoa
hazelnut cream, chocolate spread or something similar)

How to proceed:

1. Stir eggs and sugars, then add the flour step by step and end up mixing in the butter.
2. If you want marble cupcakes like ours take half of the dough and colour it with some cocoa.
3. Put some dough into the paper baking pans or directly into your cupcake maker. For the marble cupcakes take half of the white and half of the brown dough.
4. Leave the cupcakes in the cupcake maker for about 10 minutes or in the oven for about 15 minutes at 180°C/350°F.
5. Put the cupcakes on a cooling rack.
6. As a topping we put butter cream on half of our cupcakes which isn't that easy to make so in order to keep it simple I would recommend trying to decorate the cupcakes with hazelnut cream, chocolate spread or something similar which works just as well (we tried Nutella!). Put the cream you like in an icing bag and make a spiral movement while putting it on the cupcakes.
7. To get a perfect looking cupcake add some decorative chocolate sprinkles or anything you like.



Now that was easy, wasn't it? Do you own a cupcake maker or would you like to buy one? Hands up who wants to eat cupcakes now (I sure do again!).
