While mixing, taste for sweetness and increase if required. Pour this batter into cupcake moulds or liners, filling it 3/4 of the way (if using paper liners ensure they are placed in an oven safe bowl or muffin tray).

Bake for 20–25 minutes till the knife comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool completely before adding the frosting.
