Mini Cupcakes

Why do online recipes start with like a two page intro about what was going on in the author’s life when they made the food?
I don’t care about your summer in Tuscany, tell me how to make mini cupcakes asshole.
Because it’s my fucking blog, dickbrain.   
I haven’t been to Tuscany, but if I had I’d fuckin’ well tell you about it.
I don’t make mini cupcakes.  But if I did, this is how I would do it:  
  • 1 ½ cups self-raising flour
  • 175 g butter @ room temperature
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • zest of one orange and one lemon
  1. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy
  2. Add eggs one by one while beating.
  3. Add vanilla and zest
  4. Add flour slowly while beating
  5. Spoon batter to half fill each paper cup
  6. Bake for 15 minutes at 180C.
  7. cool before icing


  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • 3 Tbsp butter @ room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Food colouring(s) optional
  1. Beat ingredients until fluffy
  2. Spread on top of the cakes

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
