No Butter Emergency Cupcakes

You promise a 2 year old you are going to make cakes and then you realise you have no butter/margarine or even oil in the house to make said cake. You also cannot be bothered to go all the way to the shops.  Fear not! I discovered this sponge cake recipe with no butter woo hoo! Actually turned out pretty tasty too!

It's in american cups, which I have no clue about so I used a tea mug, seemed to work ok!

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar

1. Preheat over to 180C. Heat milk in pan until almost bubbling.

2. Mix all three eggs with an electric whisk at high speed, gradually adding sugar, for 5 mins

3. Mix on low speed and add flour and warm milk gradually. It will be quite runny this is ok.

4. Pour into cupcake cases ( I used square silicone ones) bake for 15 mins ish. 

Eat triumphantly!
