The marble cupcake looks simple and good.

I am sure it is very soft and puffy. I had made a marble loaf with all in method too, but too bad I forgot to copy the recipe before I return the book to library.

I think this is a real good alternative for Marble cakes, something that you can just eat in bite sized pieces.

Now, I am beginning to think that all cakes can be made into cupcakes :)

Hi

I'm new to baking, not sure how to cream butter with sugar for making tarts. Do we use our hand, wooden spoon or mixer for creaming?

Thanks.

simply.food said...

Such cute and perfectly baked cup cakes.

Rose Plated said...

It looks simple but when I made it a couple of days ago, I realized that looks can really be deceiving. it looks simple but tastes great! My kids enjoyed it when we ate it during our picnic.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Dear all, do try out this simple cupcakes, you will love it.

anonymous, you can use both type, wooden spoon or mixer, but use mixer will speed up mixing time.

Marble Repair Miami said...

Melanie Big said...

I love marble chocolate cake and I never thought of making some of this into cupcakes. Chocolate syrup are the best for toppings.

Wen said...

This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe..I just baked them this afternoon. Its so easy to make and the texture is velvety! I reduced the sugar to 120g & the sweetness is just right for me. However, I have a problem with cupcakes..the papercups will drop out after they are cooled. Do you have this problem? Do u bake your cupcakes in the lower rack or middle rack?

Many thanks
Chilliqueen :)
