End of an Era - Eggless Condensed milk Cupcakes


Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Yesterday marked the end of an era for us. Our daughter has finally finished her final school year.
I clearly remember her first day at nursery as I walked her to school and I held onto her fingers tightly. Now, 15 years years on she has has also left her secondary school.


To say a thank you to her teachers, she wanted to get them all a small gift. We sat thinking of what we could get and then I decided, why not make cupcakes and decorate them at home. It would be nice to make something at home than just buying a box of chocolates from the store. She got a chance to add a personal touch to her gifts to make it more memorable.
Me and my daughter had a lot of fun decorating the cakes, (mostly because we ate most of the icing)!! :)
The response to the cakes were great... Hayley told me after school that all of her school friends and
teachers were very impressed and couldn't believe that they had been made at home. One of her teachers even took a photo of the cakes!





You will need:- makes 24 cupcakes

  • 2 cup plain flour
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 200ml sweet condensed milk
  • 10-12 tbsp buttermilk
  • 10 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp soda bicarbonate
  • 1 and half tsp baking powder
  • few drops of vanilla essence

Method:-

Preheat the oven to gas mark 4-5 or 175-180 degree C. Line 12 cupcake trays with paper cups.
In a one bowl sift the dry ingredients together.
In another bowl mix all the wet ingredients together and whisk 3-4 minutes.
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and combine, Mix well.
Now fill cup cakes with batter up the half way of paper cups.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer ( toothpick ) inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean.
Let the cup cakes cool completely.
Decorate your cakes with any frosting or fondant.
I decorated mine with with fondant and edible pearls.

  1. Hi Jagruti,
    Those babies are beautiful. May I know how you made the fondant...I land up with a gooey fondant when I replace the corn syrup. Do you have suggestions?

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
