As I will need to bake to give-away to my colleagues for Christmas, one bowl recipe is always my top favourite during this period lol. I had bookmarked this recipe for quite sometimes but forgot about it until I flipped through my to bake list (a few folders) and spotted it. This was posted at Joceline's old blog which is not exist anymore.
The cake raised very high, more than double of the batter at the center and created a very nice dome shape :D.
Need to rush to neighbour country for an event, see you gals!
Ingredients : (about 5cm muffin cup x 8 pcs)
100g unsalted butter
40-50g castor sugar
2 egg (beaten)
50g self raising flour
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (I added in)
20g raisins, soak with water to soften and drain (I added in)
1. Melted the butter.
2. Add in castor sugar and beat until sugar dissolve.
3. Add in beaten eggs and mix well.
4. Fold in sifted flour and mix well.
5. Pour in the raisins and mix well.
6. Fill up the muffin case with 60-70% full.
7. Bake in pre-heated oven 180C for 20-25 mins.
** do not require mixer, just a bowl and a whisk can do the job.
The cake tasted like butter cake that those I can get from neighborhood bakery shops, not those with fine and velvety kind of texture. Quite nice to eat especially with the raisins giving extra bites and taste to it. If you are looking for a simple and easy to whip up cupcake that require no mixer and yet still good at taste, you can try this.
