Blue Cupcakes

P1729[01]_10-08-10

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 eggs

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

  2. u can use whatever flavour you can get your hands on in the kitchen or buy something that u can use again like maybe vanilla? or substitute a cup of flour with 3/4 cup of cocoa for some very chocolaty cupcakes?
    yeah i always end up with a lot of balance ingredients from previous buys, so i keep baking and cooking to use those stuff up :D
