Raspberry Cupcakes



Here kids go for summer job for a month from when they are 16 years.
And when Shyama turned 16 she coudn't go as we went to India for holiday, and she was always complaning that her friends are doing summer job and she coudn't.

So from last year she has been doing summer job in a private owned shop and there are 4 women who works there and they all are really nice to her and they like her a lot.

And this August she also have been working in the same shop and some morning she ask me Mama will you make a cake for me to take for coffee ( the shop is just 5 minutes walk from our home and she comes for lunch) and on a short notice the one thing I always makes are cupcakes as they are easy and fast to make.
And the ladies there just love cupcakes of course S loves it too.So this is one of the cupcakes I made for her to take for afternoon coffee.
A tip I got from my sister, for getting the butter cream shiny add 1 tsp corn syrup)


Took a picture with Shyama's new instrument Viola d'amora (Love violin)

Raspberry cupcake : (Cupcakes by Janet Smith)
18 regulare size cakes

1/2 cup (4 oz/126 g) very soft butter
1/2 cup (4 oz / 126 g) vanilla sugar or normal fine sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp milk
1 cup (4oz / 126 g) self raising flour
1 level tsp of baking powder
hand ful of fresh rasberries plus extra to decorate

For the Vanilla butter cream
3/4 cup ( 7oz / 200 g) soft butter
2 1/2 cups ( 14 oz /400g) icing sugar
1 tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 350° F ( 180° c/ Gas 4 ) and put 18 regular paper case into the muffin tins.
Put the butter in a bowl and beat to make sure it is really soft.
Add the sugar, eggs milk, the flour and the baking powder and continue to beat vigourously until the mixture is well mixed and cream.
Fold in the rasberries.
Divide the mixture among the paper cases and bake for 15 to 18 minutes untill nicely risen and golden brown.

These are absolute beauties. Can I use AP Flour ? Do I need to spray the paper case ? Also stupid question how do you swirl the frosting ?
Sorry for so many questions !!!

Priya said...

Such a cute looking cupcakes, irresistible icing and feel like grabbing one from the click, very tempting..

Happy Cook said...

Bong Mom You have to use self raising flour otherwise it might not raise, if you don't get it there you can look on the net they hav einfo how much baking powder one had to add to AP flour to get self raising flour. About the swrils I start from the end do a circle , and then come to the center.

Yum! I wish my baking creations looked that pretty! You should try these banana chocolate chunk cupcakes. They are incredible!

Jess Joseph said...

I just took these out of the oven & then are fantastic. Light & fluffy cupcakes. The recipe only made 13 for me , so next time i'd probably double the quantity.

Jess Joseph said...

My buttercream didn't turn out as white as yours - it was more yellow. :(

Happy Cook / Finla said...

Jess Happy to hear youmade this cupcake here we love it. Maybe the color of the butter cream depends on the butter.
