Basic Patty Cake Recipe

I wanted to share my favourite Simple Cupcake Recipe which I make at my parent’s place in Brisbane all the time! I love to bake when I’m up there as they have a bigger kitchen in their house compared to the kitchen in my teeny tiny studio apartment in Sydney.

To make these cupcakes you will simply need:

  • 2 cups of self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  •  1/2 cup of milk
  •  3 eggs
  •  125 g margarine or butter
  •  1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence

First, turn the oven on to 180 degrees and set out approx 33 paper patty cases.  If you only have one tray you can always make a couple of batches.  Next sift the flour and sugar into a mixing bowl.


Mix it all together with a beater until it is smooth and creamy looking.  Don’t forget to lick the mixture off the beaters!


Spoon the mixture into the paper patty cases until it is about 3/4 full.


Pop them in the oven for 15 minutes.


After cooling them on a wire rack, sprinkle some icing sugar on top (I was too lazy to make icing!).


Have them with a cup of tea and enjoy!
