Cupcakes

Makes 24 cupcakes

Baking time 15-20 mins

This recipe is from IRT Catering’s Phil Ucles and is a nod to his Spanish heritage.

“This family recipe, made for 60-plus years, comes from my Abuela (grandma),” says Phil. “It makes the perfect Spanish cupcakes with olive oil and fresh zested lemon from the garden and fresh eggs from the chook pen. They’re delicious for a quick breakfast, afternoon snack or a quick throw together for when a guest turns up.”

Ingredients

 

360g self-raising flour, sifted

 

240ml olive oil

 

250ml whole milk

 

3 large eggs

 

250g caster sugar

 

Pinch of salt

 

Zest of two lemons

 

1 tbsp vanilla essence

Method

Beat eggs with 200g sugar in a large bowl until sugar dissolves, add lemon zest, vanilla essence and salt.

Add olive oil a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add milk and slowly combine.

Add sieved flour, mix slowly until everything is combined. Cover and allow to rest for approximately 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees, line cupcake tins, spoon mixture two-thirds of the way, sprinkle remaining sugar over each uncooked cupcake.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes on middle rack until light golden in colour.

Remove and allow to stand and then enjoy.
