I suddenly felt like baking out of the blue. So I made these simple blue cupcakes. Though I didn't use any actual blueberries, these were blueberry flavoured and yummy!
You will need
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
3 cups flour, self-raising
1 cup milk
A pinch of salt (if your butter is unsalted)
1 tsp blueberry essence
Colored sugar sprinkles
Get down to work:
- Beat eggs and sugar, add butter and continue mixing. Add in flour and milk alternately while gently mixing. Salt and essence goes in last and give the batter a thorough mix.
Ready to go into the oven!
Bake at 180C for about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on your oven.
I over-baked mine and ended up with brown tops instead of blue! Do keep a watch over your cuppies so that you can get them out of the oven while they are still blue :D
