My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

There is nothing quite like a good cupcake. Lorraine's are pretty traditional although once they've baked you pour a warm sugar syrup into which is meant to make them moister. Yet again the quantities prove that you can make more that you think, I made the twelve and got a couple more out and even the first twelve were overflowing in the oven. I made these for a coffee morning at Zoe's playgroup so I didn't get to taste one, seems strange buying back a cake that you've made yourself. I did have a little taste without buttercream and they did seem light but I found that the syrup made them quite greasy. But all in all a nice cake, and as usual a decent portion size!!
