Ultimate Cupcake Recipe

20 May

Got some Vegan Solidarity Baking to do?

Got a community project on? Selling cupcakes in a bake-sale?

This is your basic fail-safe recipe.

It’s extremely cheap to make, has a good consistency and it’s quick to throw together. We have made hundreds of cupcakes before, using this recipe.

You can add variety by mixing up the frosting flavours, or you can flavour the mixture by adding: lemon, vanilla, cocoa, raspberry or mint – whatever you like.

Makes 12.

INGREDIENTS

1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
6 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 cup water

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 190°C.

Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients. Mix well. Fill paper cupcake cups*. Bake until springy to the touch (approximately 15 minutes). Frost.We make simple frosting by blending generous helpings of margarine, icing sugar, food colouring and flavour (in this case, raspberry).

*We use large sized paper cups, and rest them in a muffin tray so they hold shape. We added 1/4 cup of mixture to each cup.
