Hllwn cupcakes

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Yields: 14-18 servings

Description Edit

My kids like vanilla cupcakes, but feel free to add semisweet chocolate or devil's food if you want chocolate cupcakes.

Ingredients Edit

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Frosting:
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions Edit

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Sift all dry ingredients onto a sheet of parchment paper.

3. In a large bowl beat the eggs, yolks and sugar together. Add the melted butter and vanilla to the mixture.

4. Add the dry ingredients gradually into the batter. Mix until smooth. The mixture will appear light and fluffy.

5. Ladle and divide the batter evenly among muffin cups and bake for about 18 minutes, or until a toothpick tester comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before frosting.

For the frosting:

Beat the butter and cream cheese until creamy. Add confectioners' sugar slowly.
