My baby girl, youngest of three children, turned 1 year old today! We’re not having guests until Saturday so it was kind of small scaled today.
- 100 g butter – melted and cooled
- 3 dl flour
- 2,5 dl sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 0,5 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 2 large eggs
- 2 dl soured milk (or buttermilk)
All ingredients mixed together in a bowl with a wooden spoon and then scooped into about 15 medium sized cupcake forms. Baked for about 20 minutes at 175 °C (fan).
Butter Cream Frosting:
- 400 g icing sugar
- 150 g butter
- 1,5 tsp. instant coffee powder
- 2 tbsp. cacao
- 1 egg white
All ingredients whipped together until light-brown and pretty much looks like on the picture above!
I was gonna say there’s ridiculous amount of frosting on the cupcake on the picture but in the end … I ate it, cream and all.
These cakes are very sweet though, just to warn you. My 7 year old said the frosting only tasted sugar and he only liked the cake; however, my 5 year old only ate the frosting and left the cake.
Tip: I usually put these together as a layered cake, that is more or less same recipe but in two tins.
