Vanilla & Buttermilk Cupcakes

Vanilla Buttermilk Cupcakes 1

This can be baked as cupcakes or as a round cake or better still.…..in disposable paper cups. This makes a very good birthday cake if you layer with whipped cream and fruits or any other filling. As plain cakes, it’s a little bland for my taste, but it’s perfect with a cup of tea.

Vanilla & Buttermilk Cupcakes

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp baking soda
½ cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup buttermilk (I dilute yogurt)
2 eggs at room temperature
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp boiling water

Method:
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda. Add salt and nutmeg powder.
Beat butter and sugar till mixed well. Add water and beat on medium speed till fluffy. Add one egg at a time and beat well.
Add vanilla and mix.
At low speed add flour and buttermilk alternatively in 3 batches-starting and ending with flour. Scrape the sides to ensure uniform mixing.
Spoon batter into paper cups or muffin tins and bake in a preheated oven at 150 degree Celsius for 15-20 mins. Insert a toothpick at the center of the cake when the top becomes light brown.
Baking time for round cake will vary.

I used some leftover batter to make a small fresh fruit cake. It tasted good though this is not the batter for fruit cakes. Will post a recipe soon.
