valentine's day cupcakes

Happy Valentine's Day!

I made some vanilla cupcakes, these are the perfect gift to give to a loved one. They were so moist and yummy! I included the recipe and step by step instructions below.

Makes 12 cupcakes. 

1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon table salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), I used 1/2 a stick of butter
3 egg , I used egg whites
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract


Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in bowl. Add butter, egg, and vanilla and mix until smooth.

Oven should be set to 350 degrees and bake for 18-20 minutes.

They should be a golden color, I stick a knife (or toothpick) in the middle and it should come out clean.

Cool on wire rack until completely cool.

Next, frosting! I used the Butter Cream Cheese frosting from A Fanciful Twist, and it tasted like a cheesecake :)

Enjoy!!

Hi Kim. Your blog has really turned into an informative and just beautiful blog. I like how you have it laid out. I need a change from too loud to a more subdued blog:) Thx for stopping by and saying hello, hope you are doing good too. Those cupcakes look delish. Thank you.:)
