Vanilla Honey Cupcakes Pressies ....

Dd's kindy was going to have a class party on the last day of kindy school. I volunteered to bake a batch of mini cupcakes for her to share with her classmates. On baking day itself dd helped me out in the kitchen from placing the paper cups into the mould and decorating the batter with hundreds and thousands to becoming the official taster of the vanilla honey cupcakes. She is surely one happy girl.

I also did some bigger cupcakes and frosted them with buttercream to give them to the bus auntie and bus driver as well as the teachers of dd's class. This is just a little something to thank them for the year. The funny thing was when I showed them to dh, he asked me whether the bus uncle and auntie will eat these cupcakes? I really couldn't answer him. I supposed it's the thought that counts ......

Here's sharing with you the recipe that was posted by a mom at M4M
I adapted it a little by using Self-raising flour instead of plain flour.

Salted butter 115 gm
Caster sugar 115 gm
Eggs 2 nos
Self-raising flour 240 gm
Milk 125 mls
Honey 3 Tbsp
Vanilla essence 2 tsp

Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add in the eggs, one at a time.
Make hot the milk and add honey into the milk to melt and mix it.
Add the mixture of milk and honey into the creamed butter and sugar.
Add in vanilla essence. Mix well.
Add in the flour and mix well.
Spoon into mini muffin pan and bake at a pre-heated oven of 180 degree C for 15-20 mins.
Cool and store in an air-tight container.

NB: This is enough to make 48 pieces of mini cupcakes.
