Does anyone have a recipe for making just one or two cupcakes/muffins at a time?
Make them and freeze them! Muffins freeze fine and then you can take one out in the morning (or I'm happy to defrost in microwave and eat slightly warm yum.).
I'd thought about that, but DD enjoys the process of making them more than eating them, so it would be nice to be able to bake fairly often without having to eat cakes every day to keep up!
I sometimes just use one egg and reduce the other ingredients accordingly, you could try that?
One egg, 2oz each of SR flour, butter/marg and sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder will probably make 4-6 buns.
Can reduce this even further as 1,2,3,4 (pre-metric version)1 egg60g butter90g castor sugar120g self-raising flourAdd a little milk to mix if needed.Can reverse the sugar/butter for a sponge flan case - the ones you fill with fruit and cover with Quick-Jel (or arrowroot glaze and fruit juice if you're doing it properly).My gm used to replace a tablespoon of the flour with custard powder for little cakes - why she didn't just use cornflour and a slug of vanilla essence, I don't know.
Why don't you google ' microwave chocolate cake in mug' - superquick and there are lots of films on youtube/videojug. It makes enough to share between two of you.
Thanks tbmissmoffat I'll look that up, but it's more about DD getting to mix ingredients and pour into cases and watch in the oven etc than actually making cakes, so it might all be over too quickly!!
