Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes!!
Everybody loves cupcakes, but I have not found a more versatile, popular or tasty cupcake recipe than this, and it only has TWO ingredients!!
That's right, not 4, not 3, but just 2 ingredients!
Soda Pop Cupcakes: 4I Kids in Colour page: 180
* 340g (12oz) Vanilla cake mix
* 1 Cup (250ml) Raspberry Soft Drink (soda).
My favourite version is with PLAIN low sodium mineral water as posted earlier in the week.
Method: Preheat Oven to 180C/360F. Into a large bowl, pour the cake mix, then add the soda (soft drink). Stir together with a wooden spoon the mixture evenly among each. Bake for 15 minutes or until puffy and cooked thru.
You are replacing 200g of butter, 1 cup of sugar, 3 eggs & 2 & half cups of self raising flour & milk with these TWO simple ingredients.
Like everything in life, moderation is key as I much prefer replacing one cup of sugar in a traditional recipe with one cup of plain soda/mineral water.
Soda/Soft drink options that we have used that work well, please note any liquid with alcohol used below is for adult parties/cupcakes not for children:
* Raspberry Soda - for raspberry cupcakes
* Orange Soda with Chocolate cake mix for Jaffa cupcakes
* Creaming Soda - for pink cupcakes
* Soda Water - for plain cupcakes
* Mineral Water - for plain cupcakes
* Champagne/Sparking wine for adult cupcakes
* Corona with a dash of lime for Beer cupcakes
* Carbonated Mojito or Midori mix for fun cupcakes
* Rekoderlig Strawberry Cider - beautiful!!
YOU CAN USE SODA STREAM OR NATURAL BASED CARBONATED WATERS, IT IS COMPLETELY UP TO YOU, THEY ALL WORK AS DONE GLUTEN FREE CAKE MIX!
The options are endless.
Icing: We made a simple vanilla icing and added some raspberry juice for flavour and colour. You can use natural based food colouring if you prefer.
Simple Icing Recipe:
200g butter or margarine, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups pure icing sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
