Orange Cupcakes


A very simple, yummy and easy to make cupcake that can be enjoyed as a snack for tea. This is one of my mom’s collections. This is a recipe by Chandri Bhatt.

Makes: 15 cupcakes


  • Maida or All purpose Flour – 2 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda – 3/4 tsp
  • Butter – 1 cup
  • Powdered sugar – 1 cup
  • Orange squash (undiluted) – 6 tbsp
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Cashew nuts, chopped – 2 tbsp
  • Raisins – 2 tbsp


  • Basic Preparation
    • Place the butter outside for 5-10 minutes so that it reaches a room temperature. The butter should not melt, we just want it to reach a room temperature so that it blends well with the batter
    • Line the cup cake tray with greased cup cake moulds
    • Sieve the flour, baking powder and baking soda and keep aside
    • To make the batter
      • Cream butter and sugar until frothy
      • Add the milk, orange squash and mix well
      • Mix in spoonfuls of flour. At this stage, use a folding in movement, i.e. mix well in one direction so that there are no air bubbles formed
    • Baking
      • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
      • Pour the batter into the cup cake moulds. Fill in 2/3 of the cup cake, giving enough room to rise
      • Sprinkle the raisins and nuts on top
      • Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the cup cakes are slightly browned from the top
  • Cool the cup cakes on a cooling rack for a sufficient amount of time

Enjoy the cupcakes 🙂
