Hi everyone! I recently made some cupcakes which were incredibly delicious, if you have the time, I really recommend both the cupcake recipe and the frosting. I decided to frost them in this particular way because, I had previously seen a very cute cupcake that looked like a hamburger with the frosting in the middle. I wanted to try that, but I didn’t have time to really make it look like a burger or add green frosting for lettuce or red for ketchup. However, although they didn’t look like hamburgers, they tasted like great cupcakes.
I got this recipe from a great looking blog called My San Francisco Kitchen! Here it is:
1 cup softened unsalted butter
2 cups granulated white sugar
2 tbsp vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1⅓ cups cold milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl and set aside.
Cream butter and sugar together in a standalone mixer with paddle attachment (or electric hand mixer).
Add eggs, one at a time until blended.
Add vanilla and beat on medium just until blended, then turn to low speed.
Add flour mixture a little at a time until all of it is blended in. Mixture will be very thick.
Add cold milk and set mixer to “stir” setting, or the very lowest setting possible.
Once you have a homogenous mixture, use a large spoon to scoop batter into a prelined cupcake pan, filling each cup ⅔ full.
Bake about 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
Remove immediately and place onto a cooling rack to cool before frosting.
These were delicious! Next I used a chocolate frosting recipe I got from here. Here it is:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
2/3 cup Cocoa powder
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency.
Add small amount additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. About 2 cups frosting.
It was very easy and delicious!
Let me know if you try this out!
