Again I’m going with Amy Sedaris’ amazing recipe.
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups milk
Turn oven on to 375 degrees F. Put butter in mixer and beat at medium speed until somewhat smooth.
Pour in sugar and beat well.
Add 2 eggs. Mix well.
Add: vanilla, baking powder, salt, flour, and milk. Beat until it looks like it is supposed to and pour into individual baking cups, until they are about 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Should produce 24 cupcakes.
I’ll frost with Amy Sedaris’ frosting, and will either tint the frosting or better yet, I’ll decorate with gold and navy edible balls. They’ll also be in a theme cupcake wrapper. Pics will follow!
1 box confectioners’ sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract*
1/4 cup milk or light cream
food coloring (optional)
*Less than 1 teaspoon pure almond extract can be substituted.
In a bowl combine: one box of confectioners’ sugar, one stick of unsalted butter, one teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup of milk or light cream and beat for a while.
I occasionally add food coloring and sometimes substitute pure almond extract for vanilla.
