These might not be the prettiest cupcakes around,
But please, don’t let their modest appearance deceive you. For these are one of the most delicious cupcakes i have ever tasted.
I was quite surprised myself at how much i loved these cupcakes. Then i took a closer look at the recipe, and understood why the cupcakes turned out so great.
It’s quite a brilliant recipe me thinks.
For one instead of using regular sugar, these cupcakes call for icing sugar to be beaten with the butter.This results in a cake texture with the tightest crumbs and finest texture.
See what i mean?
Also, instead of regular milk, the recipe also call for yoghurt. And we all know how yoghurt always makes cakes so much more moist and soft. Plus i think the acidity in the yoghurt might have reacted better with the baking powder to result in a better rise in these cupcakes.
Of course, all these deductions are just shallow observations from a home-baker and i might be gravelly wrong. I have never been professionally trained in baking and am no expert when it comes to how ingredients react with each other.
But i think i might have eaten enough cupcakes to know that these are good!!
