“A friend doesn’t go on a diet because you are fat…”-Erma Bombeck
I love to bake and sometimes (but not always..) I like to indulge in some of my baked sweets. Unless you are a nurse that has a slew of hungry co-worker on night shifts, you know, the kind that would give you their child for a cupcake because they are exhausted and it is 2am, you probably end up with way more baked treats than you need. Cupcakes yield twenty-four, who would ever need that many cupcakes?! If you are anything like me, they sit on your counter until you eat so many that you are green in the gills or they go bad. Here is a simple solution, a two serving cupcake recipe. Perfect if you and your sweetie need a little something sweet. Also perfect if your best friend comes over crying with a broken heart. Best part, besides the whole mini-sweet cake thing, is that you only need a whisk and one bowl. No messin’ with mixers. Enjoy!
Two-serving vanilla cuppie-cakes.
-1 egg white
-2 tbs sugar
-2 tbs melted butter
-1tsp-ish vanilla (I just used a cap-full)
-1/4 cup flour (all purpose)
-1 pinch of salt
-1/4 tsp baking powder (heaping please!)
-1 1/2 tbs buttermilk (but milk will do if that’s what you got!)
Whisk sugar and egg white till blended. Add butter and vanilla and give another good whisk. Add dry ingredients, mix and add milk of choice then whisk for one final time…look at that it took you five minutes! Divide between two muffin liners (in a muffin pan) and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Let cool and frost with whatever frosting you like!
