All-in-one cupcake

When I saw this recipe on Happy Flour's blog, I can't help but bookmark it... why? Coz it's so simple! everything in 1 bowl and just mix then ingredients together.

But when it came to actually mixing it that day, I re-read the recipe to make sure that I did not get it wrong... I still decided to give it a try.... and well, the baked cuppies did not disappoint! it was soft and fluffy. very well received by the family. And the one thing i love about it most is the versatility. I can easily change the flavours for the cuppies and still know that it won't fail...

My cuppies looked a little different, reason being that I had not enough chocolate chips, so I chopped up some chocolate and sprinkled on the top.

Here's the recipe (recipe yields 12 good sized cuppies). :)

What you need
  • 170g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 110g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 170g self-rising flour
  • 1/4tsp salt
  • 1/2tsp vanilla paste (changeable to other essences)
  • 80g chocolate chips (basically you can change this to anything you like, nuts, chocolate, dried fruits...)
What to do
  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Line muffin tin with paper casing and set aside.
  • Sift flour into a mixer bowl.
  • Add sugar, salt, butter, eggs and vanilla paste into the flour.
  • Beat the mixture at low speed until well blended.
  • Then switch to medium speed and continue to beat till smooth and pale, about 3mins. 
  • Lastly, fold in both the chips. 
  • Spoon batter into the muffin tin until 60% full.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 25mins.
  • Remove cupcakes from tin and cool on a wire rack.
