Butter cupcakes

Made some plain butter cupcakes this evening. Using margarine instead of butter, the cake still taste good!

Ingredients (Makes 8):

  1. 90g margarine
  2. 70g caster sugar
  3. 1.5 eggs
  4. 0.5 tsp vanilla
  5. 90g self-raising flour
  6. 0.25 tsp baking powder
  7. 0.5 tbsp milk
  8. pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Add margarine, caster sugar and vanilla, and stir to combine. Beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes, until light and creamy.
  3. Mix flour + baking powder + salt, mix well with the margarine paste.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between the cupcakes papers.
  5. Bake for 20-22 minutes until risen and firm to touch.
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack. Allow to cool fully.
