This weeks afterschool fun activity I would like to share with you is our go to cup cake and fairy cake recipe. It is the perfect cooking with kids activity as they have to weight the eggs to get the weight of the other ingredients as everything is equal to the weight of the eggs.
Simple child friendly cup cake recipe - #afterschoolfun
The perfect cooking with kids cake receipe
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 cakes
- 2 Eggs eg 112g weigh them and your other ingredients should be this weight
- 112 g caster sugar
- 112 g margarine
- 112 g self raising flour
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan oven)
pop 12 cake cases in to a muffin tray
Firstly you weigh your two eggs. This will determine the weight of your other ingredients. Ours weighted 112g.
Then weigh your caster sugar and marg and place in to a bowl and cream until light and fluffy (we use a stand mixer, but a lightweight hand mixer is perfect for children).
Then add a tablespoon of flour and some of your egg mixture (this stops the eggs splitting the mix)
Then add the remaining egg and flour and the teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Spoon your mix in to the cake cases and bake for approx 15 minutes
We allowed 15 minutes for our cakes to cool before decorating them.
