Yummy Vanilla Cupcakes

Makes 12


2 cups self-raising flour, sifted

3/4 cup caster sugar

3/4 cup milk

125g butter, melted, cooled

2 x 59g eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon Queen Natural Vanilla Essence

Sprinkles and lollies, to decorate


1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar

Pink food colouring, optional

1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons water


Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a 12 x 1/3-cup capacity muffin pan. Alternatively, line holes with paper cases. Combine flour and caster sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the centre.

Add milk, butter, eggs and vanilla to flour mixture. Using a large metal spoon, stir gently to combine.

Spoon mixture into prepared muffin pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Make icing: Sift icing sugar into a bowl. Add food colouring and water. Stir until smooth and well combined. Spoon icing over cupcakes. Decorate with sprinkles and lollies.
