Yummy Vanilla Cupcakes

Iam back from a month long break...We had three good weeks of vacation in India, and then back here I had to prepare for my kids second birthday.It went on very well last week, though hard to believe that my tiny one is growing so fast.Will post the pictures of the menu in the next post.But before that I wanted to publish this post that was sitting in my drafts for a long time.The auto scheduler didnt work for me !!!

Have tried several recipes for vanilla cupcakes from diferent sources, but didnt quite turn out well. So I stopped making them for a while until I saw this recipe from "Passionate about baking" . Made it thrice since then , and every time it baked beautifully and was yummy.

Without taking much of your time here is the recipe:
I didnt make any changes to the original recipe, just made them with large muffin pan instead of the mini ones. Made 12 cupcakes.

Flour – 2 cups
Baking Powder – 2 tsp
Salt – ½ tsp
Butter – ½ cup
Sugar 1 ¼ cup
Eggs – 2
Milk – 1 cup
Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
Preheat the oven to 190deg C.
Grease well muffin trays.
Sift together flour + baking powder + salt 3 times. Keep aside.
Cream the butter and sugar well on high speed until light and fluffy.
Beat in vanilla essence, followed by eggs beaten in 1 by 1.
Now beat in flour and milk alternatively till well incorporated.
Put about a tsp full in each muffin casing, about ¾ full, as it will rise.
Bake at 190deg C for 10-15 mins till golden brown.
Remove immediately and cool on racks.

HI Sumi ,
I tried it out and it came realy nice. I have tried cupcakes 2 times before and this is the first time it was successful.
thanks a lot.

But I do felt like it had the "maida" flavour more. Can we substitue 1 cup of maida with cornflour ?
Please let me know..


Sumi said...

Hi, I have not used corn flour, may be you can susbtitute 2 tblsp of flour with corn flour..
but for th emaida smell, you need to check if the oven has the right temperature. sometimes if the heat is not coming out properly in the oven then it looks completly cooked, but when you eat you can taste the maida. next time try keeping the cupcakes for 2 -3 minutes more.
