Vanilla Cupcakes with Dora frosting and sprinkles

Whenever I go for any parties / get togethers, there are these cute little things sitting in a beautiful palette, from which I cannot take my eyes off and they will be smiling at me and asking me to “pick- me- up”. These cute little cupcakes are so easy to make and are so moist and fluffy.

Cupcakes were not my cup of tea till my kid started liking them like heaven. From then on  I try to make different varieties of cupcakes for her.

A standard cupcake uses the same basic ingredients like the butter, eggs, sugar and so on. Some will be having different flavors or some kind of additional nuts or raisins are added to it. Because the cupcake are smaller than the normal cakes, they bake very fast. Once they are cooled enough they can be topped with frosting or any other decorating sprinkles. Here I have used the icing frosting and dora waffles of which my daughter is a big fan.

  1. All Purpose Flour / Maida- 1 ½ cups
  2. Baking powder- 1 tsp
  3. salt- a pinch
  4. Butter- ¼ cup
  5. Egg- 1no
  6. Sugar- ½ cup
  7. Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp
  8. Milk- ½ cup
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar till fluffy. Add egg and beat well.
  3. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt. Add this little by little in the egg mixture along with milk.
  4. Add the vanilla essence and mix well. Pour this in the greased paper cups and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
For the icing sugar frosting:
  • Mix ½ cup of icing sugar with little milk and ½ tsp vanilla essence to a smooth paste and apply over the cupcakes.
  • I have decorated with edible dora stickers, as my little one is a big dora fan..:)
