Eat Me Vanilla Cupcake

I have abandoned my all time favourite cupcake recipe!  I had too.  I couldn’t get it to work properly.  Perhaps I am trying too hard.

Anyway, I found another whilst leafing through my many cookbooks.  Its from Eat Me!, a wonderful collection of simple yet AMAZING cupcakes.  I one made the Margarita Cupcakes – they were to die for.  You might be able to see the shiny thumb in the bottom of the image (polish images here) – this is my sparkly manicure from SUNDAY!  Yes, you heard me, almost 6 days of non-chipping!

Eat Me! The Stupendous, Self-Raising World of Cupcakes & Bakes According to Cookie Girl

So the recipe is straightforward, just sugar, butter, flour with a bit of baking powder, eggs and vanilla extract. I am a bit worried about the rising but hopefully with including of self-raising flour and baking powder will see the end of that!  And I have ‘soggy bottom’ concerns after the last few batches I baked had them. There were soggy when I pulled them out, not because I left them to cool in the tray….

So far so good.....

I am watching them like a hawk, they seem to be rising nicely.  14 mins in and they seem to have peaked, but not puddled.  Must get out the cooling rack now….
