Ingredientes de los cupcakes
For the cupcake batter we will use:
- 110 grams of wheat flour
- 110 grams butter at room temperature
- 80 grams of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of yeast
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
For the buttercream:
- 250 grams of unsalted butter at room temperature
- 250 grams of icing sugar
- 2 to 3 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the dough, pour the butter at room temperature into a bowl and add the sugar, mixing well. Then add the eggs and beat them together. Then add the sifted flour and baking powder with the help of a strainer. Finally add the vanilla extract and mix well.
Preheat the oven to 180º for 10 minutes. In a cupcake pan, we will put the paper molds and fill with the mixture up to 3/4 of the height. Bake for 20 minutes at 180º and then take them out and let them cool.
For the buttercream, place the butter at room temperature in a bowl, along with the milk and vanilla extract. Mix well and then add the sifted icing sugar. Beat for 5 minutes preferably with an electric mixer at medium-high speed. Later, with a pastry bag we will decorate the cupcakes. Children especially love this task.
