Magdalenas – Spanish Cuppy Cake & (Gl’ories Torre Agbar)

22 Jun

Magdalenas are Spanish tea cakes which has a fresh lemon flavour and medium sweetness. I have been fond of these Magdalenas, when I first tasted here in German ALDI shop. The following recipe yields 10 cup cakes.


  1. All purpose flour – 1 1/2 cup
  2. Egg – 1
  3. Sugar – 1/2 Cup
  4. Milk – 1/4 cup
  5. Baking Powder – 1/2 tsp
  6. Margarine – 3 Tbs
  7. Lemon peels – 1 Tbs
  8. A little Sugar for sprinkling


1. Add the egg to a bowl and beat it with a whisker. Add the margarine to it and mix it well.

2. Add the sugar , baking powder, milk, lemon peel and flour to the above mixture slowly and mix it well.

3. Spoon this mixture to a muffins tin. Fill up only 3/4, as it would puff it up to full after baking. Now sprinkle little sugar crystals on top of the cup cakes.

4. Preheat the oven and bake it for 20 minutes at 180 C.


Gl’ories Torre Agbar

This Akbar tower is one of the tourist attraction and it is the 3rd largest buildings in Barcelona. It houses many offices and luxury Hotels. This building looks adorable in the night, when it is illuminated by the 4500 LED lights which is attached to its glass wall.

We saw it only in the day time. But we did see the night view pictures of this Akbar building. The most prominent color was blue and red. If you are visitng Barcelona just dont miss this massive building.

    @Prani – I am just calling Cup cakes as Cuppy cakes, due to its catchy word and the shape looks like a cup.

    There is a also a song about cuppy cakes by Amy castle, which I like it very much.My daughter too. Check out this link.

    Check out the slideshow in this video for the same song.

    Thankyou Rani, Chetana, Sushma, Priya and Arthi for your lovely comments.
