Cupcakes on impulse.
breakfast with my brother and sister and went shopping. My sister was meant to be going on a picnic, and had to make something to take, so we went back to my house to make some cupcakes. Actually, I didn't make them, Caitlin did. All I did was get the ingredients out of the cupboard and take photos. How good of me!
I didn't even get to taste a cupcake. Caitlin ran off to her picnic as soon as they were iced. But that's ok, I don't mind. I'm cool like that.
From Nigella Lawson's "How to be a Domestic Goddess"
125g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp milk
Put all the ingredients, except milk, in a bowl, and mix with electric mixers until smooth.
Slowly add the milk, not all at once, until you get a "soft, dropping consistency"
Bake for 15-20 mins.
Cool before icing.
