Before you say a word, I know this cupcake doesn’t look pretty. I made it for a men’s meeting hosted by FringeMan. Men don’t require pretty, at least when it comes to food. According to FringeMan, this cupcake tastes “boutique”. I’m not sure what that means, but I’m taking it as a compliment.
I took an ordinary white cake recipe and added a box of vanilla pudding, the boutique touch.
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 c. butter, 1 c. sugar, 2 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour, 1 3/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 c. milk, 1 package vanilla pudding
Beat softened butter until fluffy and add sugar. Beat. Add eggs one at a time and then add vanilla extract. In a separate bowl combine flour and baking powder. Alternately add the flour mixture and milk until well combined. Right before stopping the mixer, add the pudding and only beat until incorporated.
Bake cupcakes in a 350 degree oven for approximately 20-25 minutes.
1 stick or 1/2 c. butter, 2 c. powdered sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1 1/2 tbs. milk, 2 tbs. cocoa powder
Beat softened butter until fluffy and slowly add the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and cocoa powder.
Ice cupcakes and you’re done!
I’ve recently been baking cupcakes instead of a cake, because it ensures you only get one serving at a time….less calories that way. Consider these diet.
