Colorful Cupcakes (Wheat flour)~ Kids Summer special

Summer is a beautiful weather when kids enjoy the maximum and I always prefer making their favorite items at home.These cupcakes are originally the basic vanilla cupcake recipe just added a few coloring to the cup cakes and made them more appealing for them.I made four layers-red color,yellow color,vanilla(plain) and chocolaty layers.And I prepared it in wheat flour.Hope you will all enjoy making them for small kids parties or picnics and enjoy:-)


Ingredients
all purpose flour 1 1/2cup / wheat flour
vanilla extract 1 tsp
egg 1
milk 1/4 -1/2 cup
sugar 2/3 cup powdered
butter 1 stick (125 g)  softened at room temp.
baking powder 1 1/2tsp
salt a pinch
red food color 1/2 tsp
yellow food color 1/2 tsp
cocoa 2 tsp




Method
  • Sift the wheat flour and add baking powder.
  • Whisk the egg till fluffy,add the softened butter and beat again.
  • Add the sugar and blend till sugar is dissolved on low speed.
  • Add the flour little by little and fold in.Add vanilla essence & milk.(Add milk as required satring with 1/4 cup)
  • Divide the batter into four equal parts.
  • Sift the cocoa and keep aside.Add cocoa in one part.
  • Add red color to another divided portion.And yellow color to another.Mix well.Leave the last one as it is.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Line a cupcake tray with baking cups.
  • Pour the cocoa mix batter evenly in all 12 cups.
  • Then pour the vanilla mix (plain one),and then red batter and finally finish off with the yellow color at the top.(By this time the baking cups should be 2/3 full.)
  • Place it in the oven and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, or until tooth pick comes out clean.
  • Cool on wire rack before serving .
  • Enjoy for a picnic or kids fun activities!!
