FUN FETTI CUPCAKES




Adapted from bakingbites.com, yields 12 cupcakes. Suitable as goodies bag item for kid's birthday party. Confetti cakes get their name from the confetti-like splashes of color throughout. These splashes are produced by stirring rainbow sprinkles into the batter. The sugary jimmies melt as the cake bakes, leaving behind color and no trace of what was once a sprinkle.
 
For these cupcakes, I used a classic white cake recipe. from bakingbites.com. The resulting cupcakes have the familiar flavor of vanilla and a hint of almond, as well as a clean white interior that sets off the colors of the sprinkles. 

I do not use any icing or frosting, instead I sprinkles the rainbow sprinkles and top with cherry. You can use your creativity to decorate the cake if this was meant for functions or special occasion. I made my simple for a weekend tea. I  love the texture of the cake, quite moist and soft.

Funfetti Cupcakes
1/2 cup milk
3 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp butter, soft
2 tbsp rainbow sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350F.

Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.

In a measuring cup, whisk together milk, egg whites and extracts. Set aside

In the bowl of an electric mixer (or a large bowl if you prefer to work by hand), combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir to combine. Cut in butter with the paddle attachment at low speed (or cut in by hand), until mixture is coarse and sandy. Add milk mixture and beat at medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl and continue beating for 20-30 seconds. Stir in sprinkles.

Divide batter evenly into prepared tin. Bake for for 15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.

Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting.

Cinta saya kini beralih kepada cupcakes dan muffins, memang sudah lama tunggu peluang untuk experiment dengan cupcakes dan muffins. Resipi-resipi dari bakingbites.com menarik minat saya untuk cuba. Untuk muffin pula saya ada membeli sebuah buku khas untuk muffin. Sedang teliti dan belajar. Sebagai permulaan saya cuma ambil resipi-resipi yang simple aje dahulu. Belajar technique membuatnya dan menghiasnya. Suka juga jadi hobby baru yang menarik. Untuk minggu ini dan minggu-minggu yang akan datang N3 saya banyak bersekitar pada cupcakes dan muffins.

Resipi Funfetti ini sebenarnya mudah aje, boleh juga resipi basic vanilla cupcakes dan taburkan manik kek warna warni, menarik bila manik-manik ini cair dalam kek. Kek menjadi aneka warna. keknya lembut dan lembab. Cukup sesuai kalau hendak dijadikan sebagai salah satu item dalam goodies bag sikecil menyambut ulang tahun. Dihias mengikut citarasa dan kesesuaian majlis. Saya membuatnya simple aje sebab tujuanya hanya buat minum petang, cuma tabur manik-manik pelangi itu atas kek dan letakkan sebelah cherry.
