Vanilla Cupcakes

Ingredients

225g/8oz Unsalted butter

175g/6oz Caster Sugar

4 Medium eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

225g/8oz Self-raising flour

Makes approx. 24 cupcakes.

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Whisk the butter, sugar and vanilla extract together until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, and whisk until the mixture is a smooth consistency.
  4. Sift the flour over the mixture and whisk until all lumps have dispersed.
  5. Fill a cupcake tray with cupcake cases, and using two teaspoons fill the cases half way.
  6. Place on the top shelf of the oven and bake for 15-17mins. You can use a skewer/cocktail stick to poke through the middle of the cupcake to check that it is fully baked. The skewer/cocktail stick should come out dry with crumbs on, and the tops of the cupcakes will be a light yellow/golden brown.
  7. Leave to cool for approx. 20-30mins before decorating.
