The only reason I am calling these Birthday Cupcakes is because it is my birthday tomorrow and I wanted to bake something fast and easy, which I guess makes them, well, birthday cupcakes. So I thought what better than a simple cupcake recipe with the most simple icing possible. And here there is my soft and yummy Birthday Cupcakes recipe.

Birthday Cupcakes Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 165 g brown sugar
  • 125 g  flour
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1,5 tbsp milk

For the icing:

  • 500 g Mascarpone
  • 100 g Nutella


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Line your muffin/cupcake tin with paper cases.
  3. Put all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until smooth. It is that simple!
  4. Bake for ca. 20 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. The icing: In a bowl, mix the Mascarpone and the Nutella until well combined.
  6. Before icing, wait until the cupcakes are completely cooled.
  7. Decorated with fresh fruits and some sprinkles.


If you recreate them be sure to instagram (@theflyingcocker) or tweet (@flyingcocker) me a photo.

Love, Sandra
