How to make a Giant Cupcake with Wright’s mixes
- BAKE: 60m
- SERVES: 12
To make a giant cupcake in a silicone mould use 750g of mix (a pack & a half of your favourite Wright’s cake mix).
Pre-heat your oven to 160°C (320°F, Gas Mark 3) and use the middle shelf.
Make up your packet mix following the instructions on the back of the pack and even though it tells you not to grease the mould, make sure you do as it is far easier to get the finished cake out.
Pour the mixture into both halves, about halfway in each should do, around 2/3 of batter in bottom case and the rest in the top.
Bake on the middle shelf for about an hour. Please do not try checking until at least the hour has passed you don’t want a collapsed cupcake!
After the hour do a skewer test to make sure it comes out dry and if your cake is ready, leave to cool for at least 10 minutes then use a knife or plastic spatula and very slowly ease it around the cake. This just helps getting it out in one go.
Leave to cool for a good hour or even a couple and then enjoy decorating it!
You can cut the base in half and use jam or chocolate sauce and then fix the top and bottom together with a layer of butter cream.
“I have just put the 4th cake in the oven this morning and I think your cake mixes are absolutely BRILLI8ANT!!! I have baked cakes for nigh on 60 years and came across your mixes in Aldi and thought I’d give them a try and wow, what a great idea. I’ve tried other brands in the past, but have often found them to taste of too much soda, but yours are just so good. My granddaughter loves making them as I use an electric hand mixer so the boredom bit doesn’t kick in as they’re done in a trice. I’ve just clicked on your recipes and found a lovely one for a farmhouse cake which is the next one on my ‘to do’ list. I notice that you have a fudge cake mix, but it’s not in our local Aldi (Swindon), so perhaps you could persuade them to stock it. Well done and thank you for such a great product. Kind regards ”Mrs Liz Rose
