Queen Cakes

I learnt how to bake queen cakes in Home Economics class back in my Secondary school days. This recipe is a creaming method recipe and yields a very soft and moist cupcake. Added red cherries for colour for a plain queen cake.

Queen Cakes


200 gms self raising flour
1/4 tsp salt
200gms butter
180 gms sugar
4 eggs
4 tbsps milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence


Preheat oven at 180°. Sift the flour and salt.
Cream together the butter and sugar until white and fluffy.
Add in eggs one at a time and beat till cooperated.
Fold in the flour and add in the vanilla and milk.
Mix well. Place cake cases into patty tins or silicon baking cups.
Filled with 3/4 full and baked for 30 minutes or till golden brown.
If you wants to add cherries, add half a cherry when the top is dry, 15 minutes into baking.
Remove from tin once out of oven.
