Ragi Cupcakes BM#24

After I made these strawberries once they disappeared encouraged I made them again. Only to be told they are too sweet. Unwilling to bin them I made these muffins.  

The basic recipe is what I learnt at Vandana’s I have only replaced the maida with ragi.

·        100 grms ragi flour
·         100 grms amul butter
·         1 cup strawberries & chocolate puree
·         100 grams sugar( you can use upto 125 grms but then I found these sweet enough)
·         2 eggs
·        About 40 grams chopped walnuts (optional)
·         ½ tsp vanilla essence
·         ½ tsp baking powder

1.      Melt butter in aluminium container carefully. Cool it.
2.      Beat the eggs and sugar in a mixer and keep aside.
3.      Sift the ragi with baking powder.
4.      Pre heat the oven to 150°C for 5-10 minutes.
5.      Add the sifted ragi to the butter. Mix.
6.      Add the eggs and sugar mix.
7.      Add the vanilla essence and mix.
8.      Finally add the pureed strawberries and nuts (if using) I did not. Reserve a few for garnishing.
9.      Pour the batter in the prepared tin and bake at 150°C in a prepared tin bake for 1 hour or 1 hour 10 minutes till the knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
1.      After 10 15 minutes remove the batter and add nuts on top.
