MARBEL CUPCAKES

               




It has been a long time I did not bake anything. My daughter  had two  months  summer vacation so I went to Kolkata. I have never made cupcakes, recently  I bought some cupcake silicone moulds...so Today  I  thought  of  baking  some cupcakes. ..but which one chocolate  or vanilla. I wanted  to bake my first cupcakes  with some basic    recipes...My husband  and daughter love  chocolate  flavour  and I love vanilla
Then I started  thinking.....  Are they chocolate? Are they vanilla? Then I decided  to make marble  cupcake.....For when you can’t decide if you want a chocolate cupcake or a vanilla cupcake!😊😊😊😊

Preparation Time -20 minutes
Baking Time - 25 minutes
Servings - 12 cupcakes


INGREDIENTS 
All-purpose flour-1 and  1/2 cup

Baking powder-1tsp

baking soda-1/4tsp

Butter or Vegetable  oil -1/2 cup

 Castor sugar or granulated sugar-1cup

 Eggs , (room temperature)-2
 (if you do not want to use egg...then you can use 3/4cup Yougurt  instead of egg

Milk-3/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon

Vanilla essence -2tsp

METHOD 

Preheat oven to 350F  or 180 C degrees.

 Line muffin pan with cupcake liners ...here I used individual  muffin  silicone  mould.

Take a medium bowl, add  flour, baking powder, baking soda, mix together. .. Set aside.

In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter in the microwave.Add sugar and whisk.

Add  eggs, 3/4 cup milk, and vanilla essence  into the butter sugar mixture. ..  whisk them together until combined.

Slowly mix in dry ingredients until no lumps remain.
 Batter will be thick.

Transfer 3/4 cup of batter to another medium bowl.

 Mix in cocoa powder and 1 Tablespoon milk until combined. Then add this cocoa powder mix to 1/4th vanilla batter. Chocolate batter will be extremely thick.

   

Spoon 1 Tablespoon of vanilla batter into each cupcake liner.

                   
Top with a spoonful of chocolate batter, then more vanilla batter on top until all batters have been used up.




Now swirl the batters together very lightly using a toothpick.



Bake the cupcakes for 20-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.



Serve hot..if you want you can make some frosting  on it also.My husband  doesn't  love frosting  so I do frosting  on some special  occasions  like birthday, anniversary 😊😊😊😊
