Recipe Friday.... Cupcakes!

I am a huge lover of cupcakes. I'm not a big dessert person but cupcakes get me every time. This past Sunday I was at a baptism and the centerpieces on the tables where cupcakes and it was super cute and trendy so I thought I would highlight them today!

Here's a Vanilla Cupcake Recipe, my favourite kind.
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 egg whites from large eggs
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cupcake pans with paper liners.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, shortening, milk and vanilla  in a large mixing bowl.  Mix at low speed for 2 minutes.  Scrape bowl.  Add egg whites and mix at high speed until fluffy and smooth, approximately 2 minutes.
Fill liners 1/2 to 2/3 full of batter.  Do not overfill.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes in pans then remove from pan, and place on wire racks to cool completely.
Frost and decorate your vanilla cupcakes as desired
Here's a picture of the cupcakes from the baptism, isn't it so cute!!
Enjoy the Party,
