Vanilla Custard Cupcake
Fabulous recipe shared by my friend Shoby in her blog Oven Haven by Shoby. Baked on Deepavali celebration for the kids at home back in hometown. Topped with strawberry-buttercream frosting and colorful sprinkle . Hmm very moist and fluffy! This recipe already in my diary for next season. Thanks Shoby for her sharing!
125 g Butter
2 Eggs (preferably large)
2 tsp Vanilla essence
170 g Castor Sugar
150 g Self raising flour sifted
30g Custard powder
1/4 fine salt
1/2 cup Full cream milk
Preheat oven to 170 degree Celcius.
Combine all the dry ingredients(castor sugar,flour,custard powder and salt) in a large bowl. Whisk to combine properly.
Beat to combine wet ingredients(butter,eggs,vanilla essence and full cream milk) in a separate bowl. Beat to combine in a medium speed.
Fold in dry ingredients into wet ingredients mix. Whisk the batter to smooth and creamy to avoid lumps.
Divide the batter into small cupcakes.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Let the cupcakes cools down completely before frosting.
Strawberry Butter cream Frosting
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 tsp strawberry paste
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk with electric mixer to form light and fluffy peaks.
Decorate with your own creativity.
I’m not really pro in doing decoration. Just let the cuppies be more presentable and attractive. Here I used less sugar for frosting due to health concern.
