Yesterday I saw a lovely picture of my cousin’s cupcakes, which is a tie dye vanilla cupcakes. Being me, I wanted to try as well. I looked up at my cabinet and saw blue, pink, yellow, and purple food coloring. Yay!
Now, as much as I love a good vanilla cake, I wanted to try something different. Again, I raided my cabinet and found a lemon essence. Why not make a lemon vanilla cake? It’s psychedelically good!!

yields : 2 dozens

Ingredients :

  • 120 gr butter
  • 80 ml milk
  • 200 gr flour
  • 200 gr sugar
  • 2 egss
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp lemon essence
  • food coloring (I use yellow, pink, purple, blue)

Directions :

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius and prepare 24 mini muffin cups and mini muffins baking tray.
  • Heat the milk and butter until they melted together, but do not bring to boil.
  • Shift all the dry ingredients. Mix the egg, sugar and vanilla, add to the dry ingredients.
  • Pour the butter & milk and the lemon essence, folds until all mix well. Do not over mixed.
  • Divides the batter into 4 equal parts, and color each part with different color. I made mine with pink, purple, yellow, and green (I mixed the blue with yellow)
  • scoop each batter into a piping bag. Alternate between colors when piping the batter in the cup. Do to all 24 cups
  • Bake for approx. 20 minutes.

on this batch I only use 3 colors, forgot the green :p

I made a half of recipe again this morning, and use the Red, Blue, Yellow, Green coloring to achieve the psychedelic tie dye pattern. I love it!!
