Orange & Cranberry Cupcakes

Well, I didn’t like the outcome of these cupcakes. Taste-wise, it’s good; sweetness was just nice. But presentation-wise, it’s bad. Plus I find it a tad too oily. I’m going to look for another cupcake recipe plus read up on techniques! Anyway, here are some pictures to share:

This is a recipe I used (adapted from my secondary school home economics textbook):

Orange & Cranberry Cupcakes


100g unsalted butter

100g caster sugar

1 large egg (60 – 65g)

1 tsp vanilla essence

2tbsp orange juice

Zest of 1 orange

75g dried cranberries

100g self-raising flour, sifted


  1. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy
  2. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix till combined. Don’t worry if mixture curdles
  3. Add orange juice and mix till combined
  4. Fold in flour.
  5. Add orange zest and cranberries. Mix till cranberries are evenly distributed
  6. Spoon batter into cupcake moulds, about 2/3 full.
  7. Bake at 190 deg C for about 20 – 25 min
