I love Strawberry milkshakes! So when I saw the recipe for a milkshake flavored cupcake I had to try them out and share the recipe.

 

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 18

 Cake

Ingredients

  • 210g sifted plain flour
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 70g softened unsalted butter
  • 210ml milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 40g strawberry milkshake powder (Nesquik milkshake powder)

Method:

  • Preheat the oven 170°C
  • In an electric mixer mix the butter, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together until they form a crumb like consistency
  • In a jug, mix together the milk, eggs and strawberry milkshake powder
  • With the mixer on a slow speed, gradually pour half of the liquid into the crumb mixture and mix thoroughly until combined
  • Raise the speed of the mixer to medium and beat until the batter is smooth and thick
  • Once all the lumps are gone, turn the speed back down and gradually pour in the remaining liquid, continuing to mix until the batter is smooth and combined
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared cake cases filling them two-thirds full
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes
  • Leave to cool slightly before placing on a wire rack to cool

Frosting

Ingredients

  • 500g sifted icing sugar
  • 160g softened unsalted butter
  • 50ml milk
  • 100g strawberry milkshake powder
  • Pink food colouring (2 tones if you want the two tone effect)

Method:

  • In an electric mixer mix together the icing sugar and butter on a low speed until combined and there are no large lumps of butter
  • In a jug, mix together the milk and strawberry milkshake powder
  • Gradually pour the liquid into the frosting while mixing on a slow speed
  • Add a dash of pink food colouring
  • Turn the mixer up to a high speed and beat the frosting until light and fluffy

 

To get the two tone effect brush one of the pink tones around the inside of the piping bag before piping the frosting onto the cakes.
