Cupcakes for Two! (Or one)

My ultimate goal in life is to run my own bakery. To start, I need to come up with intriguing flavor combinations, and I have pages full of ideas! But I don't want to make a huge batch of cupcakes, so I looked up some small-batch baking recipes and found this recipe for just two cupcakes.
  • 1 egg white (** I sued about 1/2 to 3/4 because I had large eggs**)
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 c flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp milk
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp (yes, one whole teaspoon!) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 heaping tsp baking powder
1) Preheat oven to 350 and place two cupcake liners in the center two cups of a cupcake pan.
2) In a bowl, whisk the egg white and sugar together, until combined.
3) Add vanilla and melted butter and mix well.
4) Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until smooth.
5) Stir in milk then bake for 15-20 minutes (or until a butter knife inserted comes out clean)

I attempted this recipe twice because the first time, my cupcakes came out rubbery and egg-y. Ew. The next time, I did not use all of the egg white. (This is probably due to my use of large-size eggs). I also made sure my baking powder was seriously heaping!
Yaaay! So round and awesome!

Decorate any way you wish!
 This recipe is a perfect idea if you want just enough cupcake to share with someone else or to eat all alone with little guilt! In my case, I would usually eat both. However, Roger (my Beloved) is quite fortunate this evening, for he will be coming home from work to see this:
I felt generous today. :)


  1. Awesome! I expect to see lots of new flavor trials now :) I propose a maple frosted chocolate guinness stout cupcake with candied bacon sprinkles :) have at it!


Send me some feedback! Watch the language, though!
