Great Pattycakes
« on: April 07, 2009, 10:42:18 am »
 :P Yes, I call them 'pattycakes', not cupcakes.

This was originally a food processor recipe, so converts well to the Tmix.

Place in bowl:

220g softened butter
3/4 cup (150g) castor sugar
1 1/2 cups(240g) SR flour - I have successfully used plain flour with 2 t sp of baking powder
4 eggs

You can dump the whole lot in and mix for about 3 minutes on speed 4.
But I prefer to do it this way:
Mix the butter and sugar at speed 4 for 3 minutes. Scrape down frequently.
Add eggs one at a time and mix for 30 secs each - scrape down between additions.
Add sifted flour and mix on speed 2 for 30 seconds or until incorporated. I now use the  :: setting for adding flour to cakes. Mix for about 15 - 20 seconds and use spatula to assist.

Bake at 180oC, fan forced for 15 minutes. I use an ice cream scoop to fill the patty pans. Makes 16.

members' comments

Amanda - I just made these and they are lovely. I added 1 tsp of Queens Vanilla Paste. If I wanted to make them chocolate I would sub 1-2 Tbsp good quality cocoa for same amount of flour.

ralo - These are great though mine needed 30 minutes to cook.

brazen - great recipe and converts well to being gluten free!!
Just wanted to note that I made these yesterday with GF flour and lots of vanilla but forgot to put the baking powder in - they are even better than usual without it! yum!

CP -  had a half success today - one batch rose, and then the second batch rose and then sunk to a level top. Am still getting used to my new oven perhaps...

Jabba - I made these and they turned out really well. I needed to mix for about 2 min to incorporate the flour - and used the spatula.  I made 12 cakes in large patty cake papers (in muffin trays) and in my oven, cooking time was closer to 30 min.  Delicious!

darls - I made 50 cup/pattycakes and all were gone. My boy said it's the most yummiest! I did two batches with small paper cupcake, using green icing on top and 5 smarties as 5th bday.

simplyrhonda - Made these, the loved them. Delicious & easy.

maddy - Nice and easy MJ. I added 50g coloured splinters in with the flour too.

WAThermoFamily - thanks Meganjane these tasted great!  Even so good that most were eaten before I got time to ice and decorate.

AmandaN -  I have used egg replacement as my younger son is allergic.  The cupcakes out ok.  They were a little drier than cupcakes with egg but I didn't expect them to be exactly the same anyway.  A couple of them (slightly larger) broke when I removed them from the tray, but hey.....they were the commission ones that I got to eat!  They rose well and dropped a little in the middle, so with icing they were pretty much flat across the top.  I then added 5 mini-marshmallows (his 5th birthday), and you don't notice at all.

Lisa J - Thanks for this recipe, they were lovely. Made a second batch and stirred crushed Oreos through the batter and they turned out even NICER!!

em - thanks mj for a great and simple recipe.  I love the recipe, the batter is so fluffy and when cooked the patty cakes are beautiful and moist.

cottchick -  they are fantastic and too easy for words. I just threw all the ingredients in in no order, forgot the baking powder, still they are just perfect. THANKS!

A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

hubby and I did them together - took about an hour I'd say - not too long, this year. We've had some birthday cakes which have taken hours and hours :)

No milk in these?

I cook them in a pretty hot oven. When I say 'fan forced', I mean I put my super fan on, which is a high heat one for my oven. I'm guessing the temp is more likely to be about 200 C

Only cook on high heat if filling pans to nearly full - then you'll get the high peaks. If using an ice cream scoop to fill pans, then cook at 175 - 180C only.

Great accidental thing to discover Karen.
