Back to doing what i love, baking.

I am normally scared while trying to mix indian flavours with cupcakes, because it’s a hit or miss. and this turned out well, i wanted something refreshing to go with the imposing flavour of this cupcake. so i decided to make a lemon and rose buttercream.


  • A.P Flour – 75g – (1/2cup+1tbsp)
  • Baking powder – 7g – (1/2tsp)
  • Butter – 56g – (1/2 stick)
  • Caster sugar – 100g – (1/2 cup)
  • Milk – 80ml
  • Thandai syrup – 2tbsp
  • Egg – 1 medium


Start by creaming butter and sugar for a a good five minutes, then add the egg yolk.

egg, butter, sugar

Then put in the milk and thandai mixture, and give it a good mix. The batter seems split but don’t worry it will eventually fall in place, just like everything else.😉


then add in the flour batch by batch, it took me 2 batches. and give it a good mix. But do not overmix*.

flour, baking powder

Line your cupcake liners, and scoop it out or spoon it out. Preheat and bake at 180°C/ 350°F(fan). For about 18-20mins. one of the way to check if your cupcake is ready by seeing it get light brown on top. and then put in the skewer to check.
