Easy Easter Cupcakes

4th April, 2012

Easter is coming and Momma is getting fat!!  Why is it that everything centers around food for me?  There isn’t a season this world has to offer that doesn’t make me want to bake and Easter is one of the worst!

Anyway…if you’re looking for a nice easy baking project with the kids or just something fun to put on the table this Sunday then look no further.

These guidelines make 6 cupcakes so double or triple the ingredients if you’re having a party, keep them the same if you’re just having some fun and you’d like to keep the sugar intake down!

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg

The weight of that egg in;

  • Butter or Margarine
  • Caster Sugar
  • Plain Flour
  • And finally, 1tsp of baking powder
  • Food colouring of your choice…TOP TIP!  Be sure to use professional food colourings for sponges, I have experimented with Asda own and I’m afraid to say the results were terrible.
  1. Allow your butter to soften out of the fridge for an hour or so.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar with a wooden smooth until it is a smooth paste.
  3. Add your egg and beat until fully combined and there are no lumps.
  4. Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix the whole lot together.
  5. Divide your mixture in to the same number of small bowls as you have food colouring and mix a few drops in to each until you are happy with the tone.
  6. Spoon your varying colours in to cupcake cases and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool then decorate with chocolate icing and Cadbury Mini Eggs.
  8. If you’re feeling especially playful, spoon your different coloured mixtures in to the cases in layers to make stripey multi-coloured cakes!
