Mandarin Orange Cupcakes

Maya

I bought E above book abt 3 months ago, however I only tried 1 of E recipe. E tag line of E book was “The Only Cupcake Compendium You’ll Ever Need” I guess if I were to try 1 recipe in every 3 months, It would indeed be E only book I need. There’s enough recipes to last me for a lifetime!! 😀

Anyways I have been wanting to try this recipe for quite some time now. All E oranges that we have at home was a good excuse to try this recipe. I made 2 different topping for E cupcakes. E original version with E orange syrup and some of these cuties were top with some orange butter cream. It was suuuuuuuuuuuperb! E syrup made E cake really moist. Very pleasant indeed. I loved it and so did my family members.

  4. Gently stir in the rest of the ingredients, including the orange puree, until well combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases and bake for 20-30 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Notes
Although it is already delicious on it's own, you can also pipe some butter-cream over the cupcakes.
