Another long break, lots of happenings, lots of food experiments and I am back with cherry cupcakes. Cupcakes are complete mini cakes, with their fair share of everything, the taste, the frosting , the goodness. The following recipe for cupcakes is very adaptable. you can add any seasonal fruit you like. I used cherries. You can go for mango , banana or the likes. The recipe for the basic cupcake is somewhere from internet, I missed the link.
225 gms flour
210 gms sugar
210 gm butter
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp cornflour
Cherries (pitted) , as required
100 gm butter
100 - 150 gm sugar
Preheat oven at 170 C.
Put all ingredients except cherries in a bowl and beat to mix until lumps are removed. Line your cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Put 3 - 4 pieces of cherry in each cup. Fill 2/3rd of the cups with cake batter. Bake for 18 - 25 minutes or until done. The time depends on the size of cupcake pan, less time for smaller cupcakes, more time for bigger cupcakes. Makes 18 - 24 , again depending on the size of cupcake. Decorate with frosting.
Beat butter and 100 gm sugar together until light and creamy. Add more sugar and beat until desired consistency is reached.
