Sponge cupcakes

中文菜谱: 海绵纸杯小蛋糕

The recipe is from http://forums.huaren.us/showtopic.aspx?topicid=1699462&forumpage=1, I make a little bit change, and they turn out great.  My thanks to dodorat , the author of this recipe. 

These wonderful little cakes are just like the cakes I used to buy from street vendors when I was a kid. 


3 eggs
100 g granulated sugar
120 g cake flour
40 g whole milk
30 g vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla exact
1/4 teaspoon salt



Preheat oven to 375 F/ 190°C

Beat the eggs on high speed with stand mixer.  Add sugar little by little. 

My husband bought this mixer as a thanksgiving gift years ago.  It is the perfect gift.  Love it and it is still running great. 

Beat until egg mixture is very light and pale in color, double or triple in volume, around 6 to 9 minutes.

Shift cake flour and salt, and gently fold in with a rubble spatula. 

Combine milk, oil and vanilla exact; whisk together until well combined.  Take a couple scoops of batter, mix with milk mixture, and then add the milk mixture into big bowl of batter.  Fold in gently with a rubber spatula.

Line up the cupcake baking mold with paper cups.  Fill the cups with batter. 

Bake them for 14 to 16 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.  

They look just like the ones I used to buy from Chinese street vendors. 

The texture is great oo.
