You will almost never hear me use those words to describe any cupcakes I've made.
I rarely just make vanilla cupcakes...
however, we are having our new roof put on today
and the contractors blocked my car in.
So the cookies and cream cupcakes will have to wait till next weekend.
hard impossible to keep oreos in this house.
Recipe for the cupcakes:
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter room temp
4 large eggs
1 cup milk (I used skim today. all I had)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
I keep tweaking this...
added more butter this time...
it's reflected below.
trying to get it where I just l.o.v.e. it
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter room temp
6 to 8 cups confectioners' sugar (start with 6 cups, I've never used more than 6 1/2)
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I had vanilla, but I used almond. I heart almond extract)
