How to Make the Perfect Cupcake

by Elizabeth




         Have you ever tried to make the perfect cupcake, but it turns out a disaster? Most people think it takes hours to make a perfect cupcake. However, it just takes patience, the right ingredients, and a little effort.



          First you have to choose if you would like to make chocolate, vanilla, banana, carrot, lemon poppy seed or any other flavor you can imagine. If you are in a rush then go to a shopping center and get a box cake. All you have to do add vegetable oil, eggs, and milk or water. That just depends on what type. On the other hand, if you would like to make home made cupcakes, you are reading the right paper. My essay will tell you how to make the perfect vanilla cupcake.

First, you have to go to the store to get the following ingredients. The best tasting cupcakes are made with organic ingredients. You need two and a half cups of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder,  a half teaspoon baking soda, a half teaspoon salt, half a cup milk, a half cup vegetable oil, and one teaspoon vanilla extract. Also you need one stick of unsalted, softened butter, one cup sugar, and three large eggs. Now that you have all your ingredients get out two large bowls, a wooden spoon, cup cake holder or grease for the muffin pan, and a muffin pan.  

Preheat your oven to three hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit. In one bowl put the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In the other put the milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, the butter and the eggs. Then take the bowl with the wet mixture and mix until combined. Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry mixtures bowl. Do not pour to fast or the contents may splash. Next you take the wooden spoon and mix the dry and wet mixture in a circular motion.

Then you either place the cupcake holders in the muffin pan or grease the muffin pan. Next you slowly and carefully pour the batter into the muffin pan. When you are finished pouring the batter into the muffin pan, you place the muffin pan into the oven. The cupcakes cook for fifteen to twenty minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can get out some decorations, while you are waiting. If you have frosting, you can put it in a zip lock bag, cutting out of a corner of the bag with scissors. That makes an easy way to frost cupcakes. When the cupcakes are done you can take them out to cool. In ten minutes you can decorate your cupcakes. You can serve these perfect mouth-watering cupcakes after decorating.

This also works for a nice vanilla cake which I made tonight. It was the perfect dessert for a Wednesday night.
