Why, of why, did I choose to bake cupcakes for a baby shower? While they were very cute, they weren't my best.
I baked chocolate cupcakes for the first time. I attempted twice, before giving up (as time was running out). They were moist, but about half the size of my vanilla cupcakes (Thank God, the baby shower was a free gig and for a friend).
After I delivered the cupcakes, I began to wonder if I am making baking harder than what it really is...
Below is the recipe I use for my vanilla cupcakes:
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup milk
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tsp salt (which I omit)
Is it possible to use the vanilla cupcake as a "base" to create other flavors....such as: key lime, lemon and even, chocolate?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
