Quick and easy cupcakes

This is a super easy, no mixer required recipe! It is so quick and easy I’ve used it so many times I’ve lost count. It’s also a great base recipe for different flavours, in fact I think it works better with others flavours, especially chocolate and coffee. I found it online somewhere, I really can’t remember, but I know they’re a Nigella recipe. I used her exact recipe the first time, then I made a few adjustments. Here it is!

Super easy cupcake recipe

125g softener butter

1 level tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tblsp milk

Pre heat oven to 180c and get your cupcake liners ready in a pan. Combine all ingredients (except milk) in a food processor and blits. Once combined, pull out the paddle/blade add your milk and give it a mix with a spoon. Fill the cupcake liners to 2/3. They do rise a lot. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
