Funfetti Cupcakes for Two!

Back in the day when I still used boxed cake mix to impress my friends with my baking skills, funfetti would have to be one of my top flavors of choice.

Oh how those days are gone. And sometimes I miss them. Those little colorful balls in the batter, the creamy colorful beads in the icing.

So let's bring them back. In a recipe for two. You can brighten anyone's day when they see these on your counter...

Funfetti Cupcakes for Two

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon milk
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sprinkles (i used non pareils for the batter)

The How To:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Line a cupcake pan with two liners (in the middle for even baking).
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, milk, egg white, vanilla extract, and sugar until thoroughly combined.
Add in the flour and baking powder and whisk gently until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Add in the sprinkles and using a rubber spatula, gently fold them in. Don’t over stir. If you stir too much the dye from the sprinkles will bleed and you’ll have tie dye cupcakes instead of funfetti.
Pour batter into your prepared cupcake pan.
Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.
Let them cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

Vanilla Frosting

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium bowl and an electric mixer, beat the butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract until a frosting forms. If you like a thinner frosting, add a bit more milk until you reach your desired consistency. Frost your cooled cupcakes, and toss on some more sprinkles!

yay for funfetti cupcakes! & happy baking!
