This is my sister-in-laws recipe and it is the best that I have come across for patty cakes ( also known as cup cakes). The cakes are light and yellow in colour because of the custard powder and they are delicious!
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup castor sugar ( although I used normal sugar)
1 1/2 cups Self Raising flour
1/2 cup custard powder
1/4 cup milk
Cream the sugar vanilla and butter.
Beat in the eggs one at a time
add sifted flour, custard powder then milk
bake in a moderate oven for 15 minutes.
Decorate with icing ( if they last that long )
