    Mini Cup Cakes

    I am really enjoying the Food from the
    "Party Line with Hearty Boys TV Show".
    I trialed 3 of their dishes for Lucy’s Birthday in an earlier blog.
    Very successful.

    Here is the recipe for their Mini Cup Cakes.
    These were cooked and decorated by Katie (her design)
    with recipe supplied by me.
    They look sensational.
    These were for a little girls birthday party.

    It is a slightly different method than normal, you heat the butter and milk together
    and add to egg, sugar and dry ingredient mix.

    The recipe makes heaps and there were only a handful left from this beautiful tray of cakes.

    You need
    3 eggs
    ½ cups sugar

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    ¾ cup of milk
    6 tablespoons butter

    1 ¾ cups flour
    2 teaspoon Baking Powder
    ¼ teaspoon salt

    Heat oven to 175C
    Mini muffin tins
    Hint make sure they are well greased for easy removal

    Whip eggs and sugar till fluffy
    Add vanilla
    Sift and add dry ingredients just a
    little at a time, you don’t want to be wearing a flour suit.

    Meanwhile heat milk and butter don't boil.
    Just enough to melt the butter.

    Finally fill the tins ¾ full.

    Into oven…this mini muffin size (pictured) should be done in 10 minutes
    If your tins are slightly larger allow for that in the timing.
    Quite often little kids only eat the icing on the cup cakes, but these little nibbles were gobbled down, hardly any left.

    Hi Asha, Anali and Barbara

    I'm glad you love them...Katie is making some carrot cup cakes for a school fair I think we might have to put those on as well.
