Chia Seed and Orange Cupcake





Saw this recipe from a magazine and since i got a bottle of chia seeds on hand. So just bake some cupcakes. Wow!! This cupcake recipe yields soft and fluffy cupcakes. Today  I'm happy with the cupcakes I bake.

Chia Seed and Orange Cupcakes

Ingredients: 125 gms butter
                      3|4 cup sugar ( I use brown sugar)
                      1tsp vanilla
                      2 eggs
                      250gms self raising flour
                     3 satchets Super Nutre Mill cereal or 50 gms oats
                     60 ml milk
                     1|4 cup orange juice
                     2 tbsp chia seeds
                     1 grated orange zest

Method: Preheat oven to 160°. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
               Lightly add  flour alternately with orange juice and milk in 3 batches.
               Mix chia seeds, cereal and zest.
               Spoon mixture 2|3 full and bake for 20~ 25 mins.
               Cool cakes in pan for a few mins. Pierce holes on the cake and brush syrup on top.

Syrup: Combine orange juice, sugar. Bring to a boil.
            Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 mins. Add zest and cook for a 5 mins.

Note: I did some modifications to the recipe. I substitute caster sugar with brown sugar and added only 2 sachets of  Super Nutre cereal.
