(chocolate) oatmeal raisin cupcakes

not much too say since i'm in a rush to make a summary of my management and business lecture. so i'll quickly write this post. okay, today i almost fell asleep but my little brother didn't let me to so i started looking for something to occupy me. look for the recipe, search for the simple one, and here i come, cupcakes.. again and again but i was too lazy to make the frosting. hahaha. 

Oatmeal Raisin Cupcakes
by Krystina Castella

1/4 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar, plus more for sprinkling on top
1 cup milk
1.5 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground allspice
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2/3 cup raisins

  1. preheat the oven to 350 degree fahrenheit or 180 degree celcius. Insert liners into a medium cupcakes pan.
  2. in a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, and 3/4 cup of the milk with an electric mixer on medium speed.
  3. in a separate bowl combine the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.
  4. add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. beat at low speed for 30 seconds to combine the ingredients, then at high speed for 2 minutes. add the remaining 1/4 cup milk and the eggs. continue to beat for 2 minutes. fold in the raisins.
  5. fill the cupcakes liners three-quarters full. sprinkle with brown sugar. bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cupcakes comes out clean. cool cupcakes in the pan.
well, what really happened in my kitchen today is that i forgot to sprinkle the brown sugar but i did sprinkle some chocolate chips. haha. i also made the chocolate one which become Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cupcakes, just add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder, 1/3 cup chocolate chips and reduce 1/3 cup of the raisins. but i didn't really like the chocolate one. hmm, yummy! hahaha :))
