To check if cupcake is ready:-
- Insert the tooth pick. If it come out clean, cupcake is ready
- Touch the cupcake, if it springs back it is ready.
Amul butter is brand from India. It has salt in it. It gives a nice taste to the cupcakes.But not to worry if it is not available. Using plain butter + 2 pinch of salt will give the same result.
