Vanilla Cupcakes

Suddenly felt inspired while watching MasterChef on TV. They made it looked so simple ... Some of the contestants don't even know how to bake (ah hah ... since they can do it ... i can do it too right??!! ...WRONG!!!!) I'm so excited ... and I decided to try my luck ... Did not turn out too good ... it turned out bad actually ... messy over flowing to the sides and due to that ... my cuppies all have holes in the center.
I feel lousy and sucky.

I took this recipe from allrecipes.


  • 125 g butter, softened
  • 125 g superfine sugar
  • 155 g self-rising flour (i used 111g flour, 4g baking powder)
  • 2-1/2 eggs
  • 4 ml vanilla extract
  • *i put toblerone


This recipe's Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 1 dozen cupcakes.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper baking cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each one. Stir in the vanilla and flour just until mixed. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly. I put toblerone inside the better
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter.

If ur using SRF.. make sure u check the expiry date first ok.. if ok then use.. if u tak pakai SRL.. what i will normally do is that if a recipe calls for 120g of SRF.. i will usually pakai 120g flour and 1/2tsp of baking powder and also a pinch of baking soda..

I ever buat muffin with toblerone .. jadi nye tak memuaskan... toblerone nye buat the batter lembek selembek lembek nye lol.. so chin up and gv it another try or maybe source for a new reliable recipe..

Ouh ok I'll do that next time cos I have flour at home so takmo lar belik SRF cos tak selalu kan buat kuih.
I google for the sub so i tarok 111g flour and a pinch of baking power gitu.

Thank Kak Rima for taking time, appreciate the advice. =D
