Cupcakes and magic sprinkles

Cupcake Recipe

0 Mins
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 100g castor sugar
  • 150ml milk
  • 2 x medium eggs (about 60g each)
  • 125g butter (softened or melted)
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • Popping candy sprinkles, icing, jelly sweets etc to decorate

STEP 1

Mix the ingredients in a bowl until a smooth consistency, but be careful not to over mix.

STEP 2

Grease the cooking plate with a little vegetable oil, oil spray or use suitably sized cupcake cases.

STEP 3

Close the lid and switch on. The green warning light will display until the optimum temperature is reached.

STEP 4

When the red ready light comes on, open the lid carefully.

STEP 5

Working quickly, use a dessert spoon to fill each compartment or case with the mixture (about 2/3 full). Be careful because the cooking surface will be very hot!

STEP 6

Close the lid and cook for about 5 - 8 minutes. Resist the temptation to have a peek before the first 5 minutes as cupcakes don’t like to be disturbed!

STEP 7

After 5 minutes, lift the lid and have a look. They should be risen and cooked, but give them a few more minutes if you think they need it. Cooking time varies so you’ll need to use your judgment.

STEP 8

Once cooked, switch off and unplug the Cupcake Maker. Use a wooden or heatproof plastic spatular to carefully remove the cupcakes to a wire tray for cooling. Don’t use metal as this can damage the coating on the plates.

STEP 9

Once cooled, decorate with icing, popping candy sprinkles & all things nice.
