Here is a basic cupcake recipe that you can make as-is, or to which you can add your favourite flavourings. For example, try adding 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or almond extract. See more ideas in the footnote below!
Make your very own flavour combinations with any of these additions:
• Stir in any of the following with the milk: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; 1 teaspoon almond extract; 1 tablespoon lemon, orange or lime zest.
• Add any of the following in with the flour: 150g chocolate chips; 125g chopped nuts, such as walnuts or hazelnuts; 125g dried fruit, such as sultanas, cranberries or currants; 75g desiccated coconut; 100g chopped glace cherries.
• To make a spice cake, mix in the following with the flour: 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.
• For a chocolate cupcake, replace 1 1/2 tablespoons of the flour with unsweetened cocoa powder. Add 150g chocolate chips for a double chocolate version.
