Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
if you are using the 125g recipes for 12 buns, you can add 2 tablespoons of milk to the mixture and it makes slightly fluffier buns.
Thank you! I've found a recipe that includes buttermilk so I'm hoping that will have the same effect as a yoghurty recipe... Oh no! All this cake eating... My sad, sad life!
Any of the recipes from the primrose hill bakery recipe book work really well. My favourite is carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese icing.
I agree with both Mogz and bacon. Peyton & Byrne cake recipes often include yogurt. The Guardian "how to make the perfect..." articles are really good. Try www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2010/jul/08/perfect-fairy-cakes.
Look for a recipe that contains yoghurt or almonds these will make a lovely moist cake over the run of the mill bland mix. Look for any recipe doesnt have to be cupcakes.www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/10860/easy-vanilla-cake just alter the mix to the amount of cakes you want to make.
If you're using a regular sponge recipe and it is going dry try cooking for about 2 mins less, that should help keep them moist. Or add a splash of milk to the batter mix.
My little cakes always seem to be dry... I need to make a large amount for a bake sale at work and would love a nice base for the festive decorations I am going to heap on top!
