whole
1/2 cup butter

1 cup plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 mediums eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to prepare

Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 350 F and fill a muffin tin with paper liners. Combine butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until fluffy. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl. Beat eggs and vanilla and add. Mix until incorporated.

2

Pour a small amount of batter into the bottom of each muffin liner. Add a TURTLE to each tin and cover with batter mixture. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes until risen, golden and delicious. Let cool on a wire rack and pipe a generous amount of chocolate icing onto each cupcake. Enjoy!

Tips

Don’t overmix it.

The longer you mix your batter, the denser your cupcakes will become. For a light, fluffy texture, mix until your ingredients have just combined.
