You can tell they are ready once they are a light brown or if you stick a knife or fork into one of the cup cakes and none of the cake mixture sticks to the knife or fork. Or you can tap one of your fingers onto one of the cakes and if it bounces back then it means it is done.
Altered ingredient amounts. I tried this but found it quite runny... I'd use a bit less milk with this much vanilla. - 03 Jul 2009
. A favourite with everyone. Well tested on kids and adults and 100% every time. Lovely light cake and perfect for those who like a little chocolate flavour but not too much. - 23 Jul 2010
Lovely light cakes. I added walnuts to half of the mixture and the result was lovely! Will make these again soon! - 01 Aug 2010
