Firstly Merry X-Mas to all of you 🙂 Honestly I had no plans of baking this Christmas. Suddenly my little one demanded a cupcake that too with butter cream frosting and decorations. This was no easy a task for me & am not an expert in baking… But still Chotu insisted – “Let’s make it mom”. He brought the courage & confidence in me to try it in the last minute.He helped me a lot and yes – It was a success 🙂

To add to this, I had no eggs or condensed milk at home. So how to make the cupcakes?

Then googled and adapted this recipe from Tarla Dalal and the frosting from Dishin with Di.

For the Butter cream frosting:

  • Unsalted Butter – 1/2 cup
  • Icing/Confectioner’s sugar – 1 cup
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Method:

 Cupcakes:

  • Finish off all the flour to form into a batter. Line a muffin tray with muffin liners and scoop in the batter 3/4th in each muffin liner. Bake for 20-25 mins or until an inserted tooth pick comes out clean. Once baked remove the cup cakes and cool completely before decorating.

Let’s get ready with the butter cream frosting.

Butter Cream Frosting:

  • Take unsalted butter and beat with an electrical beater until it is soft & light. This will take 5-7 mins. To this add icing sugar little by little and beat it.

Tips:

  1. U can leave the eggless vanilla cupcakes as is without any frosting. They taste good too.
  2. While making the butter cream frosting, add the sugar little by little, mix it with a spatula and then use the electrical beater. Else u will end up covered with sugar all over u.
  3. For a lighter butter cream frosting add more tsps of milk as per your choice. Mine was thick as u can see in the pics with 2 tsps of milk.
