Leave them without icing, or top with your favourite colour or flavour of icing for added fun. Get the whole family involved in creating these lovely treats.



Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 24

Ingredients

To make vanilla cupcakes:
200g of butter
1 3/4 cups caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
4 eggs
3 cups of self raising flour
1 cup milk

Place the butter, caster sugar and vanilla essence into a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until combined and creamy.



Gradually add the eggs and beat these through the butter mixture until well combined and glossy.

Alternate between adding some flour and some milk, stirring to combine after each addition until all of the flour and milk has been added.

Spoon the cupcake mixture evenly into each patty pan.

Once cooked, allow the cupcakes to set for about 1 minute then carefully lift each out of the baking tray and allow to cool on a wire rack.

To make butter icing. Place the butter in a mixing bowl and chop it into smaller chunks to help soften it before beating it.
