Victoria Sponge cupcake recipe

I recently shared some cupcakes that I made and by surprise a lot of people started messaging me for the recipe. So I decided to share it with you all. Now it’s nothing special. This recipe is already out there, but here we go πŸ™‚

You will need these ingredients:

200g butter

200g sugar

200g self raising flour

4 eggs

1tsp baking powder

2tbsp milk

I also like to add vanilla extract or in this case I added raspberries that were finely chopped.

How to make them, it’s very easy. I put all the ingredients in a mixer and mix until everything is nicely mixed together.

I put my oven at 180β€’c for 15 mins. I then use an ice cream scoop and scoop the mixture into the cupcake tins aligned with cupcake wrappers. In they go in the oven for 15 mins. I then use a kebab stick and skew into the cupcake. If the stick comes out clean then they are ready. If not, put them back into the oven for atleast another 5 mins.

Leave them to cool down on a cooling rack and make the buttercream.

For butter cream you need:

250g butter

500g icing sugar

1tbsp milk

Vanilla extract

Put the butter in your mixer along with half of the icing sugar. Mix until the butter start changing colour. Then add the rest of the icing sugar and continue mixing. Add the milk and vanilla (or any flavour you like) and mix again for atleast 5 mins. And it’s ready πŸ™‚

Now just pipe the buttercream onto the cooled cupcakes and top with fruit. I used a wilton 1M to pipe the roses. Enjoy!!!
