Easy Cupcake Recipes

Hi, on this site I’ve listed different easy cupcake recipes that I thought would be helpful to someone who wanted to see the different ways of making it all on one site. So down below there are easy cupcake recipes that I have discovered from different sites and have put them in one place whereby making it easier for you to choose an easy one and go with it. I hope this makes baking easier for you. Don’t mess up the whole kitchen!

By the way they are not put into order.

No.2 of easy cupcake recipes

Ingredients
2 large eggs, cracked open
1 tsp vanilla essence
125g/4oz caster sugar
125g/4oz soft margarine
125g/4oz self-raising flour
To decorate (optional)
tubes of writing icing
marshmallows, white and coloured
food colouring, for icing
coloured sweets

Method
1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and beat them together until the mixture is smooth and slightly lighter in colour.
2. Line a bun tin or cupcake tin with paper cake cases and half-fill each case with the cake mixture.
3. Cook the cakes for 18-20 minutes. You can tell they are done when they have risen up, are golden in colour, and spring back into shape when lightly pressed.
4. The cupcakes can be decorated using a basic icing, plus marshmallows, writing icing, food colouring and coloured sweets. You can even make a cupcake farm with animals such as sheep, piglets and dogs.

No.3 of easy cupcake recipes

125g / 4 1/2 oz softened butter
125g / 4 1/2 oz caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
125g / 4 1/2 oz self-raising flour
2 tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas mark 5. Either butter the tin or place the paper cases in the holes (see above). In a mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. You can use an electric whisk or a wooden spoon.
Add the beaten egg, a little at a time, whisking to incorporate, then beat in the vanilla.
Sift in half of the flour and fold into the mixture. Add the milk and the rest of the flour and fold until well combined.
Spoon into the tin and bake for 12 minutes or until risen and golden on top. Allow to cool for ten minutes on a rack before removing from the tin.

No.4 of easy cupcake recipes

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
7 Tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup self-rising cake flour *
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
(May use 1/2 teaspoon almond extract instead of the suggested 1 tsp.vanilla extract.)
2-3 Tablespoons milk


Directions :

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. (I bake them at 375* F)

Line a 12 cup muffin tin with baking paper cups.

Put all the ingredients except for the milk into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Pulse while adding the milk down the funnel to make for a soft consistency. (I use the full 3 Tablespoons)

It doesn't seem like enough batter, but it will all work out, scrape every bit from the bowl and try to fill each cup equally.

Bake for 15-20 or until they are golden on top. (These are perfectly baked in 14 to 15 minutes @ 375* in my oven) It's best to start checking them at 12 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack, but remove from the tin as soon as possible.

No.5 of easy cupcake recipes

For the sponge
4 free-range eggs
225g/8oz sugar
225g/8oz self-raising flour
225g/8oz butter, melted

For the icing
170g/6oz icing sugar
110g/4oz butter
55g/2oz cocoa powder, sifted

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and prepare two 12-hole tartlet tins with fairy cake cases.
Whisk together the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy
Gradually add the flour and the butter, folding the mixture together gently.
Pour the mixture carefully into the fairy cake cases.
Bake the cakes for 10-15 minutes, until golden on top and a skewer carefully inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean. Allow to cool for ten minutes on a wire rack before removing from the tin.
To make the icing, whip together the icing sugar, butter and cocoa powder
Once the cakes are cool, ice them liberally
Decorate the cakes with chocolate buttons, sticking them on at a 90 degree angle in layers all the way around so each cake resembles a chrysanthemum flower.
