Bafana Bafana Cupcakes!

The other day my sister and I baked some Bafana Bafana cupcakes to celebrate the start of the soccer world cup. They turned out pretty well considering we made up the recipe a we went according to what we had in the house so I thought I'd try and remember it for you


aprox. 400g margarine

2 cups sugar

3 cups flour

3 eggs

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup milk and water mixed (possibly more)


preheat oven to 180
Cream margarine and sugar together
add eggs and mix well until completely blended
add vanilla essence
gradually add flour, baking powder and milk and water while mixing continuously until you have a smooth batter
full a muffin tray with paper cupcake cups and spoon mixture into them
place in oven and bake for about 15 minutes (you can tell they are ready if they spring back into shape if lightly pressed in the centre)
allow to cool and ice with topping of your choice (we did green and yellow icing to match the bafana colours)

Go Bafana!

They didn't really rise but they tasted very good!
