Easy Cupcakes-4 Flavors

Easy Cupcakes-4 Flavors Recipe

What makes me so happy 🙂 when I see different flavors and colors of cupcakes together in a display cabinet in a cake shop or any where else. My daughter is same she also loves cupcakes. So on her 13th birthday I decides to make different flavour cupcakes for her.

How to make different cupcake flavors with just 1 recipe batch? It is so easy and simple. Make a vanilla cupcake batter then divide it into 4 parts and add chocolate, colour, or any flavour of your choice. You can add lemon zest and juice and make them lemon cupcakes. Add in orange zest and juice and make orange cupcakes. Add in any flavour extract and make your cupcakes to that flavour. That means it is endless, Use your imagination and make them 🙂

It is same with butter cream. Make a basic butter cream recipe and add in your favorite flavors.

Place cupcake liners in a cupcake tin. Fill them with cupcakes mixture.
I wanted my cupcakes a bit higher that is why I filled the liner more than half and made 3 cupcakes of every flavour.
But you can fill the cupcake liner almost half and make 4 cupcakes of each flavour.

Now bake them in a preheated oven at 175 C for almost 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Cover them with clingfilm until you use them. I like to cover them when these are bit hot because then they remain soft for longer.
