Orange Frosted Cupcakes

A recipe from

Cupcake mix

  • 100g softened butter
  • 2.5ml NoMU vanilla paste
  • 115g castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 160g self‐raising flour
  • 30ml milk

Vanilla butter icing

  • 125g softened butter
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 45ml orange juice
  • Rind of 1 orange

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a standard muffin tin with paper cases. Place all the ingredients into a mixer and beat until soft and fluffy. Divide the mixture among the cases.

Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until cooked through. While the cupcakes are baking, make the icing. Beat the butter until soft. Slowly add the sifted icing sugar and orange juice when it starts to get too thick. Mix in the orange zest and beat until thick and fluffy. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and place on a cooling rack.

Ice when cool and decorate.
