Method: (With Step-by-step pics)


Preheat oven to 175 degree. Line a cupcake tray with cup cake liners and keep it ready. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.



In a large bowl take sugar and oil. Mix with a mixer in high speed until its combined well. (I mixed in a cup as its easier to pour batter in the cupcake liners)



Add egg and mix with high speed. Add vanilla essence and mix



Add the dry ingredients to it, about 2tbsp at a time mixing after each addition, just until combined. (all step from this step should be done in low/medium speed)



When you start finding it difficult to mix start adding curd and mix



Add milk and mix until combined.



Batter is ready (The batter prepared will be runny)



Pour the batter in the cupcake tray (2/3 maximum in each liner)



Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the cup cakes from the pan and let it cool. Serve and Enjoy!!!!

  1. Hi mam!
    An very new to baking . I got bajaj otg to try my hands on baking . I failed so badly while making bread , buns and I got teased very badly by family . So please help me . In the above method, should the OTG be kept in BAKE mode (only bottom elements beats up) ? I stay in remote place where taking classes in baking is not ppssible

    • Dear Saradha,

      First of all don’t be sad 🙂 For most of the bakers there will a story to tell. You should know your oven settings well. Most of the cases, recipe might be correct, but when oven settings go wrong it will be a disaster. My 5th Cake came proper. The settings i was choosing was not correct. Till then i was grilling my cakes :p. Ideally for baking both heating elements (top and bottom) should heat up. If its pictorial representation of setting, there will be line on top and bottom. Select that mode when you are baking. Give it a try, i am sure you will be to master baking 🙂

      Vimmy 🙂
