Easy cupcake recipe

12 09 2011

Here’s the recipe I promised you when I blogged about those Rainbow Cupcakes last week.

Just remember that after you’ve mixed up your batter, you need to divide it into bowls, add the food colouring, and then place a spoonful of each into the paper cups.

Have fun!

Easy Cupcake Recipe


225g self-raising flour

225g castor sugar

225g soft margarine/ butter

5ml (1 teaspoon) baking powder

4 eggs

45ml (3 tablespoons) water [or 3 tablespoons of the juice and grated peel of one orange/ lemon]


Set the oven on 180 degrees Celsius.

Place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk together until the batter is smooth – it should have a light yellow colour to it.

Spoon about a dessertspoon’s worth of batter into each paper cup.

Place the paper cups on a baking tray or in a muffin/ cupcake pan, then bake for about 15 minutes or until the cupcakes are golden brown.
