1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup caster sugar (super fine sugar but not icing sugar – grind in the blender)
1 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla milk to mix

* Cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy
* Beat eggs and add gradually into creamed mixture
* Sift flour and add.  Add milk and mix until a soft consistency
* Spoon mixture into cup cakes and bake for 15-20 minutes in a mild oven
(190 deg C / 375 deg F). Place in the middle of the oven.
Let them cool totally then ice and enjoy!

Simply the best buttercream icing ever!
I only use this recipe:
1 cup of good quality salted butter
3 teaspoons of vanilla (clear vanilla if you want a whiter color)
4 cups of icing sugar
4-5 tablespoons of coffee cream (18% and up)

Using room temperature butter, place it in your mixer bowl.
Using a paddle attachment, whip the butter until it’s creamy and fluffy.
Add in the icing sugar, one cup at a time, beating in completely, until all 4 cups are combined.
Add in the vanilla and whip again to combine.
Add in your cream, less cream = stiffer icing. More cream – fluffier icing. (I use the caramel International Delight coffee creamer)

I have a passion to cook and experiment, and have gathered recipes for almost 50+ years (paper and then electronic). I felt it an absolute waste to just toss all those wonderful recipes in the garbage and forget about them, thus decided to put them to good use and started “The Recipe Hunter” Facebook page: The Recipe Hunter (Cook &Enjoy) and the Blog
