Recipe: Self made cupcakes

Today, I made cupcakes! Well, for as much as that’s properly possible with a combi microwave.

Self made cupcakes, this one is coffee flavored As you can see in this photo, some ‘cupcakes’ rather turn out like cookies… however, they’re still tasty!

Natural, Nutella, Nutella with oatmeal, coffee, vanilla and peanut butter cupcakes I made cupcakes in several different, experimental flavors: Natural, Nutella, Nutella with oatmeal, coffee, vanilla and peanut butter.

Cupcakes recipe

– 1 pack of cake mix (400 grams)
– 3 eggs
– 200 grams of butter

Optional: – Nutella – Peanut butter – Coffee (pre-made) – Vanilla sugar

Simply mix the cake mix, eggs and butter in a large enough bowl, for about 4 minutes. Additionally, you can add milk, but I didn’t do that.
I made some cupcakes using this mixture, then I put some of it in a new bowl and added a spoonful of Nutella. I mixed it again and added them into cupcake forms. Then, I added some oatmeal into the Nutella mixture, mixed it again, put it into cupcake forms.
Next, I created a mixture using the base mix plus a little bit of coffee (black). Mixed it, and put it into cupcake forms. Then, I made a mixture of base mix with a spoonful of peanut butter.

Lastly, I added 8 grams of vanilla sugar to the base mix. Mixed it, and made cupcakes out of this as well.
Using a combi microwave, I baked the cupcakes at 160 degrees Celsius for 16 minutes.

It’s a lot of fun to experiment with different flavors for cupcakes, and all flavors tasted just fine. 🙂
