Custard cupcakes with cheerios toppings

Cupcakes are heavenly delights loved by everyone.I simply look for excuses to bake and eat them.And if you have never baked them before,here is a simple recipe to help you out.

This is a recipe for making 6 eggless cupcakes. Yummmyyyyy. Lets get started.


All purpose flour -1 cup
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Baking Powder – 1 teaspoon
Baking Soda – 1/2 teaspoon
Milk – 1/2 cup
Custard Powder(eggless,vanilla) – 1/2 cup
Salted Butter – 1/4 cup
Sunflower Oil – 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract -1 teaspoon

For the frosting:

Whipped cream -1 cup
Powdered sugar – 3/4 cup
Vanilla extract -1 teaspoon
Nestle cheerios
Star sprinkles
Dry Cranberries – 1 tablespoon.

Preheat the oven at 250 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
In a bowl, sieve all the dry ingredients – All purpose flour,baking powder,baking soda,custard powder.
In another vessel, beat the butter with a whisk(hand or electric) for about 5 Min till it becomes soft and fluffy.
Hand takes a bit more time. Add sunflower oil and whisk again.Then,add in sugar,vanilla extract and a portion of milk.Mix them well.Don’t add in all the milk at a time.Sometimes, you don’t need the exact amount mentioned.
Further,add the dry ingredients in 2 portions.Add in milk if the batter is too dry.The custard powder will give a very bright,lovely
yellow colour.Add the other set of flour and mix.
Fold in all the ingredients till they have incorporated well.The consistency should not be too thin or too flowing.
Fill in the cupcake batter in the moulds and place the tray in the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes at 150 degree Celsius.
Let it cool completely before adding frosting.

Frosting Procedure:

Whisk the whipped cream till you get pointed peaks.Since I got a ready made whipped cream,I didn’t have to whisk much.
Add sugar and vanilla extract and mix well.Fill the icing in the piping bag with your favourite nozzle.Do the icing and decorate it with cheerios,stars,dry cranberries or any toppings of your choice.
The awesum custard flavour and the soothing yellow colour will drive you crazy.This is a complete amalgamation of flavours- vanilla,custard,cakes,butter cream icing with chewy cheerios topping and dry cranberries.
