Speedy Cupcake

 I am really terrible when it comes to baking.  I've tried a few times to make cupcakes but most of the time they don't turn out well.  This time, I bought the ready mix cupcake and followed the instructions carefully.  To my surprise, it was really easy and save time too.  At least, I don't have to measure the ingredients one by one.  For this cupcake mix, all I need was to add in four grade A eggs, 120ml water and 120ml palm oil. 

Instead of 120ml water, I substitute it with my kids milk (since my lil prince seldom drink milk nowadays) and as for the palm oil, I use the Colavita Olive Oil instead (that's the only oil I found in my kitchen ^__^).

The instructions was pretty easy.  Mix all the ingredients and use the electrical mixer and beat in medium speed for 1 minute followed by another minute in high speed.  Scoop the batter into the cupcakes mould and bake for 15 minutes.  This time I was really careful not to put too much of the batter into my cupcake paper cup because I was afraid that it will over flow during the baking process.  I guess I was too careful.  Didn't really turn out that nice.  Nonetheless, this time the cupcake it is edible!

The next thing that I should try is how to decorate my cupcakes!  I only have some sprinkles in my fridge and use them as decoration for my cupcakes.  Looks like my cupcakes has some purple and pink pimples on them :P.


  1. I like using premix nowadays too because it is so much convenient while tasting good too. Making a cake from raw ingredients is definitely not cheap today especially when we need to buy so many things. My hub always say, better buy from shop :)

  2. Fish,
    Thank you so much for your compliment. I think I need to attend baking classes to improve :P

    Chin Nee,
    Yes, it's easier using premix and save a lot of time. At least we don't have to measure the items one by one and wash more utensils!

    Thanks, Mery. Still needs lot of improvements!
