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)
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.
