Ingredients: For the Cake ( Makes 24 cupcakes or 48 or more mini cupcakes based on the size of the cupcake liners.)
– 340 gm (2 1/2 cups) Plain Flour
– 130 gm (1/2 cup + 4 tablespoon) Cornstarch or Cornflour
– 2 tsp Baking Powder
– 1 tsp Baking Soda
– 500 ml (2 cups) Milk + 2 tablespoon Vinegar
– 440 gm (2 cup) Granulated Sugar*
– 250 ml (1 cup) Vegetable Oil (preferably rice bran)
– 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
– 2 tablespoon Water
– Line a 12 numbered cupcake or muffin pan with cupcake liners.
– In a bowl assemble all the dry ingredients the plain flour, corn starch, baking powder and soda together and sieve together once.
– Preheat the oven to 175 C/350 F.
– In another bowl put in the milk and vinegar and allow it to sit for about five minutes. Put in the granulated sugar and oil and blend with a blender until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the vanilla extract.
– Now put in the sieved dry ingredients into the liquid ingredients, add the additional 2 tbsp water and blend with a blender until well mixed about 3 to 4 minutes.
– With the help of an ice cream scoop or a spoon drop the batter into the cupcake liners and bake for about 20 minutes for regular cupcakes and 10 minutes for mini cupcakes.
Ingredients: For the Chocolate Buttercream Icing
– 200 gm (1 cup) Butter (I used salted butter)
– 455 gm (3 to 3 1/2 cups) Icing, Powdered or Confectioners Sugar
– 100 gm (1/2 cup) Cocoa Powder
– 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or 1 tsp Vanilla Extract + 1 teaspoon Almond Extract or 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract + 1 teaspoon Orange Extract
– 2 tablespoon Cream
– 2 tablespoon Milk or 4 tablespoon Milk
– In a KitchenAid Stand Mixer with the paddle attachment or in a food processor or in a large bowl using a hand beater or a wire whisk, cream the butter and stir in the confectioners/powdered sugar and cocoa, mix on low speed and cream again until soft and creamy.
– Stir in the vanilla extract or other flavouring of choice and beat again for a couple of minutes.
– This is a flexible recipe and if your icing is stiff add a little more milk, a tablespoon at a time and if your icing is thin, stir in more powdered sugar.
– Spread the icing over the cakes with a spoon or with an icing bag (cut a tiny hole in it). Or put the icing in a bag and fitted with a star or other nozzle of your choice, pipe designs.
– Decorate with sprinkles or other cake decorations of your choice.
