Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys! Wishing you all a very happy Valentine’s Day today! Wether you’re sharing it with that someone special or not, I hope you have a fabulous day and show everyone how much you love and appreciate them.

Today I have made some Valentine’s Day cupcakes. They are really simple but who doesn’t love mini cakes as a gift? I thought I would share the easy recipie with you so here it is!


Ingredients:  (makes 12 cupcakes)

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Method:

  1. Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt the butter, add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the combined liquids to the dry ingredients and fold together until the flavour is dampened, but not smooth.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between 12 medium-sized muffin pans that have been well coated with Chef Mate non-stick spray.
  5. Sprinkle with chocolate chips is desired while baking.
  6. Bake at 200 degrees C for 10-20 minutes or until centres spring back when pressed lightly. Leave to stand in the pans for about 3 minutes before moving and cooling on a wire rack.

Icing:

  1. Mix 2 cups of icing sugar, a table spoon of butter, 1-2 drops of red/pink food colouring and approx. two teaspoons of boiling water to make it smooth.
  2. Pour gently onto your cupcakes!

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day wherever you are in the world!
