Cupcakes are one of the greatest little joys in life.
This week we’ve whipped up some cupcakes that are not only delicious, but they look cool too!!
Enter stage left: Rainbow Cupcakes. (They’re deceivingly easy to make)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
Assorted Food coloring.
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and line a cupcake pan with 12 liners. In a bowl beat together the butter and sugar until creamed. Add the eggs, beat well after each. Add Vanilla extract. In a seperate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly and alternatly add the flour mixture and milk. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. When you have your batter, seperate the batter into four or five smaller bowls and add a different food color to each. Pour a little of each color battered into the cupcake liners. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until done.
These cupcakes are great for kids parties or if your event scheme incorporates a multitude of different colors. Also, for those who are culinary challenged, boxed cake would also work here.
