  • Base cupcake ingredients:
  • 1⅓ cup (150g) Self-Rising flour (or gluten-free Self-Rising flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (use gluten free for gluten free option)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium eggs ( Vegan option - 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of water to replace 1 egg.)
  • ¾ cup (150g) sugar
  • ⅓ cup + 2 teaspoons (90ml) Vegetable oil
  • Top up ingredients:
  • 12 grams pears cut into small pieces (or grated)
  • 12 grams apple cut into small pieces (or grated)
  • handful of peanuts and raisins
  • dried sweetened cranberries
  • blueberries
  • cashew nuts
  • zest of half a lemon use zest of whole one lemon if its small
  • zest of one orange
  • 1 teaspoon dessicated coconut
  • crushed cardamom seeds.
  • 1/8 teaspoon cocoa powder for each chocolate flavoured cupcake
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder for each cinnamon flavoured cupcake Make it 1/4 teaspoon if you like cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C/180C fan. Prepare 12 silicone cupcake moulds. Alternatively use a 12 cupcake tray with cases.
  2. Prepare the ingredients listed under Top up ingredients as in picture below.
  3. Combine all the listed Base cupcake ingredients(self raising flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, oil, eggs) until just combined. Do not over mix as it will result in a dense cupcake.
  4. Divide the mixture into the prepared cupcake cases till it's half filled.
  5. Add the ingredients listed under Top up ingredients to the half filled cupcake mixture as in the picture below. While adding cinnamon, mix cinnamon first and then add pears/apple and mix well again. Use a skewer to mix.
  6. If required top up the cupcake mixture in the cases.The mixture should not be more than 3/4th of the case.
  7. Bake for 22 - 28 mins until a skewer inserted into the middle of each cup cake comes out clean. Un mould from the silicone cases and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. I used store bought Betty Crocker Vanilla Buttercream Style Icing. The cupcakes taste good without icing also.

The cupcakes taste better after a couple of hours.
