Cupcakes for TwoPosted: May 23, 2012
I’ve been wanting to try this cupcake recipe for a while now because it removes the issue of having dessert enough for a party when it’s just you wanting something sweet and cakey. I dont’ have any “progress” photos because these are just that easy to make! The cake is moist and very vanilla flavored. I think the simplicity makes them all the better. It’s a step above doing a mug cake in the microwave and pulling out something that’s worthy of Cupcake Wars. Okay, it’s closer to the mug cake.
Note: I didn’t make the cupcakes in the ramekins, but that could be a fun way to serve them, if you have tiny ramekins of course.
One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes for Two (Directly from How Sweet It Is)
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/4 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 2 liners.
In a bowl, add egg white and sugar and whisk until combined. Add in vanilla and melted butter and stir until mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir until smooth. Stir in milk. Divide batter equally between the 2 cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until cake is set. Let cool completely, then frost as desired.
