How to make these homemade delights

Like all the best recipes, this recipe contains a secret ingredient: vanilla yogurt. So to make this personal favorite, have a look in your refrigerator or make your way down to the supermarket and grab a medium sized /175g vanilla yogurt (see picture on the right).

You will need:

  • 1 175g tub of vanilla yogurt.
  • 1 yogurt tub (same tub) of vegtable oil.
  • 1 and 1/2 tubs of white caster sugar.
  • 3 tubs of self rising flour.
  • 3 eggs.

Preheat the oven to 180 °C , 350°F or gas mark 4.

How to

  1. Mix yogurt, caster sugar and self rising flour in a bowl.
  2. Mix in vegetable oil and eggs, stirring until smooth and add the chocolate chips (optional).
  3. Place cup cake cases on tray and fill to near the top with the cupcake mixture.
