When it comes to cupcakes, it’s important to have a really great recipe up your sleeve that you can rely on and you know works perfectly every time. So I thought I would share mine with you.
When I first started my baking business, one of my first jobs was to turn to my favourite Mary Berry cupcake recipe and multiply it so I could easily see the quantities for any number of cupcakes that a customer might order.
Mary Berry’s basic recipe found in her ‘Ultimate Cake Book’ is for 12 cupcakes, but with the standard size cases I can only get 9. So I’ll double it and give you my tried and tested recipe for 18 cupcakes – the perfect number to bake some for a party or gift and have a few left over to nibble on at home.
You will only need 5 ingredients:
200g Caster Sugar
200g Self Raising Flour
2tsp Baking Powder
If you want to make chocolate cupcakes – simply replace 50g of the self raising flour with 50g cocoa powder.
It really is THAT easy. Once they’re cooled you can decorate them with flavoured or tinted buttercream and sprinkles.
If you have any questions, please ask – I’d love to know how you get on, and see some photos of your cupcakes
Enjoy baking ……
I would thoroughly recommend Mary Berrys ‘Ultimate Cake Book’ and you can order it for next day delivery from Amazon.
