Vanilla Cupcakes

I have been using this recipe for quite sometime now.  However, I am keen to try different recipe recommended by other people.  Please note that the measurements below are British Imperial.

Below can make about 12 cupcakes or 24 fairy cupcakes.

Ingredients:
100 grams unsalted butter
120 grams self raising flour
2 tablespoon of cornflour
110 grams of caster sugar
2 large eggs (free range)
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Paste

Method:
Before you turn the oven on, please make sure that the butter is very soft without melting.
Set the oven temperature to 160C.

Put all the measured ingredients in a mixing bowl (if you are using an electronic hand mixer)
or use a Kitchen Mixer if you got one at home (like Kitchen Aid or Kenwood Mixer).

If you are into toning your arms, you can use a wooden spoon too.

Mixed all the ingredients until well combined, do not mix it for over a minute, it is likely that these cupcakes will be tough after baking.  The batter should look like a heavy custard and will plop nicely from a spoon.

Line the muffin pan with cupcake liners and fill the liners between 1/2 and 3/4 the way up.
Bake for 20 minutes but check after 15 minutes with a little cocktail stick, if there is any batter stuck to the stick then bake for full 20 minutes.

Let the cupcakes cool in the pan for a few minutes then take them out carefully and allow to cool outside the pan.  Make sure the cupcakes are cool completely before icing.

Enjoy and Thanks for reading.
