One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes For Two

One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes For Two
Let’s face it: sometimes we all need a dessert that only makes two servings. Sometimes we just can’t handle 12 servings. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves. FYI: I have no idea what that is like. Haven’t you always wished you could make just enough dessert for yourself? Or… just yourself? Me too. But more often than not, I’ve found it to be a hassle to drag out the mixer, cream the sugar and butter, sift the dry ingredients and all that fun stuff for a measly two cupcakes. What can I say? Well, I was lazy. It is definitely your typical white cake; fluffy and soft, full of vanilla flavor, and the perfect vehicle for some fluffy white frosting. And it only takes one bowl! I think what I love most about these cupcakes is their customizability.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs Recipe TGIF, friends. Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing. Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?! I’m kind of over the moon about it. Anyway, warm wishes coming your way for a good weekend ahead. Read more Ever since my friends and I met for a tapas happy hour at our neighborhood Spanish restaurant a few weeks ago, I’ve had sangria on my mind. So of course, when I found myself in the fruit section at the market this week trying to decide what kind of sangria to make for our weekly neighbor night, I immediately thought of sangria. …oh good grief, why had I never thought of this before? Sangria with All The Colors. The only reasonable solution, of course. ;)

Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cookie Dough Frosting These cupcakes are a spin off of the popular cookies and cream cupcakes, which I am still having dreams about. Dreams so vivid, that I can taste them in my sleep. Or . . . maybe that is just the cookies I was eating in bed. Kidding! These cupcakes are dreamy, too. I used the good ole’ recipe for my vanilla bean cupcakes, and simply added some chocolate chips. They came out super moist and tasty. It’s like a cookie in cupcake form. I would be lying if I said these stuck around for a few days. That ooey, gooey frosting down there? That’s fine by me. Chocolate Chip Cupcakes makes 12 cupcakes 1/2 cup butter 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup milk 1 cup chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, sugar, and eggs together until fluffy. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Pour into cupcake tins and bake for 20-25 mins at 350. Cookie Dough Frosting 2 sticks butter, softened 1 1/2 – 2 lbs powdered sugar 1-2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. I should say, a light ending provided you don't eat too many. The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb - the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. Notes for flaming strawberries:Any alcohol below 80 proof will not ignite well. Shaina made a margarita version of this on Babble Food. Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Yield: About 20 cupcakes [click to print]Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

How to Make Marshmallow Fondant This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar. I also had lemon oil and coconut flavoring on hand.. oh la la the value brand (which still works fine). Step One: Take a couple of handfuls of marshmallows and put them in a microwave safe bowl. I like to make smaller batches because its easier to add the colour to the melted marshmallow than it is to work the colour into the fondant later. Step Two: Stick the marshmallows in the microwave for ten seconds at a time until the are puffed up and easily stir into a goo with a wooden spoon. Step Three: Step Four: Fondant with the icing sugar kneaded in.

Martha Stewart's Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes Recipe Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies? I went out yesterday to do my weekly shop, came home, and before I was able to bring in the first grocery bag Matt was hunting for the cookies and cream ice cream. One of Matt’s favourite desserts of all time is cherry cheesecake and I thought to myself why not Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes, that should satisfy his craving. Plus these cheesecakes are super easy to prepare, everything comes together in one bowl and there’s no crushing chocolate wafers with a rolling pin, then melting butter, baking the crust first and then baking a second time when filled. Drop an Oreo cookie into each muffin tin, make filling, add chopped cookies, bake, and enjoy, how easy is that? I can’t wait to try my hand at homemade Oreo cookies.

Green Juice Sorbet I can honestly not tell you how long I have been a vegan. A couple of years, at least. I can tell you, however, that I was very late to the green juice bandwagon. A drink that I often feel is a vegan staple item. Everyday, I would find someone on Twitter talking about their latest green juice recipe. Then I got a juicer. I think I have had my juicer for four months and I have been green juicing everyday since. I cannot say the same about some members of my family. Truth be told, I do not know how effective the greens are in this form (versus fresh from the juicer). I think any combination of your favorite green juice would work. Just have fun and make things interesting and people will be willing to try!
