Basic cupcakes

This is a recipe for very basic cupcakes that you can add anything to.

You will need:

Paper cases

115g soft butter

115g sugar

115g self-raising flour

2 eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius or gas mark 5.  Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.

After the butter and sugar is smooth you can add the eggs a little at a time stirring after each addition.

Next you can sift the flour and fold into the mixture. I forgot to sift some icing sugar the other day it was a nightmare trying to get all the lumps out!

Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases. I have found that using two teaspoons is the easiest way to do this.

Just pop them in the oven for 15 minutes, and then they are all done. All you need to do is decide how to ice them.

There are several variations you can try to make these more interesting. You can add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, or coffee essence. To be honest you can add pretty much any flavour to this simple recipe. Why not get creative with the icing?
