Vanilla cupcakes. {recipe}


Today Ellie and I spent the afternoon baking. 
We made Vanilla Cupcakes. 

Preheat oven at 180 degrees.

Add the butter and caster sugar to the mixing bowl. Cream together until the mixture goes pale. 
Beat the eggs (a little at a time) into the butter/sugar mixture.Add the vanilla extract/flavouring and stir the mixture. 
Add a little flour at a time and fold into the mixture. Add 1-2tbsp of milk. 
Pour the mixture into the cake cases.
Cook in the oven for 15-20 mins or until the cakes are golden brown on top. 

Leave to cool before decorating.
 We used butter-cream icing, icing pens, 
sprinkles and all kinds of things to decorate our cupcakes.

I am really getting into baking now. I've never been very good at baking but practice makes perfect! Home made food is so much better that brought food. Ellie really enjoyed helping bake cakes as you can see in the picture. I might try baking biscuits next time.. Wish me luck, lol! If you have any easy baking recipes you'd like to share with me, please leave me a comment. I'd love to try your recipe.
