I made vanilla cupcakes with strawberry icing for Valentines Day.
They were a huge hit.. So today I made them again! This time they were for Miss Morgan.
But this time I used a different vanilla cupcake recipe. It's more buttery in flavour (because it requires buttermilk) and very crumbly.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 180. Line about 16-24 muffin cups and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl as needed. Mix in eggs and egg yolk one at a time and then mix in the vanilla. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Combine. Add 1/2 of the buttermilk. Mix. Add another 1/3 of the dry indredients. Mix. Add the final 1/2 of the buttermilk. Mix and then add the final 1/3 of the dry ingredients. Mix until combined and the batter is smooth. Spoon out batter into lined cupcake pan, filling only halfway or just barely over halfway.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes
This time, I tried a different decorating method with the same icing recipe from V Day.
