A favorite recipe

Day 9 was a close up of my day. Here’s one from my garden cleanup this afternoon. (Upper rightt corner is a sandbag!)

And today, Day 10, is a fav recipe. I don’t use recipes very often, but the one I use the most is my basic cupcake recipe. I picked it up somewhere years ago, maybe from a friend? Anyway, it’s very easy to modify, which I love!

Preheat oven to 350.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar (I use white, brown, whatever I have)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  1. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. With the mixer on low, alternately add the flour mixture & milk, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
  6. Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until nicely browned and toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Place on wire rack to cool.

    Love the picture. Saving this recipe for later. What kind of stuff to you add?

    • Well, for instance, over the summer I made strawberry lemonade cupcakes by adding mashed berries, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar. Red velvet by adding cocoa and coloring, etc. Sometimes I just throw chocolate chips on top…whatever strikes my fancy at the moment.
