The lovely people at Wholeberry Folk had sent me some of their new home-style baking mixes to try and so I took advantage of the rainy weather today and did some baking. With 25% less sugar than other leading brands and made from nutritious spelt flour I also felt a little less guilty indulging in the finished product!
This afternoon I tried the Blueberry Frost Cupcakes, a vanilla cake mixture with yummy blueberry frosting made using real blueberries. The cake mixture only required the addition of milk, eggs and butter and it was easily mixed in the KitchenAid. My husband is lactose free so I always bake with Nuttelex and lactose free milk and the end result was still delicious!
The mixture made 12 generous size cupcakes and could have made a few more if you spoon less into each patty case. I ended up cutting the tops off the cupcakes before icing to give a flat surface. Don’t worry, the leftover pieces of cake didn’t go to waste… The icing was so easy to make with the addition of butter (again I used Nuttelex) and water. I hadn’t made icing this way before so was unsure how they would turn out but it was a really smooth consistency, great colour (thanks to the blueberries) and tasted so good.
I love to bake and normally avoid packet mixes but these cupcakes were super easy to make, delicious and nobody even knew they were nutritious with the spelt flour! Fantastic to have in the pantry for school lunch boxes, rainy weekend baking or if you need to quickly whip something up for visitors. The kids can also get involved given how simple they are to make.
Wholeberry Folk cupcakes are available in Banana Split, Strawberry Milkshake and Blueberry Frost flavours, with a Cinnamon Raisin cookie mix to complete the range. Wholeberry Folk retail for $6.49 and are available in Woolworths supermarkets now.
