Snickerdoodle Cupcakes


If you like Snickerdoodles you MUST. TRY. THESE. NOW!!!  Seriously, one of the best cupcakes I've ever had.  They were moist, buttery, sugary and cinnamony.  Yes, I realize cinnamony is not a word but these were so good I just don't care!  

The recipe, from Martha Stewart's cupcake book, suggests pairing with her Seven-Minute Frosting, however I paired with a Vanilla Bean Buttercream.  Top with cinnamon and sugar for a spicy sweet finishing touch.  If I'd have had a little extra time I would have made mini Snickerdoodles for a cute little garnish, but alas, time just was not on my side.  


Snickerdoodle Cupcakes
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-rising), sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups milk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare cupcake pans with liners.  Sift together flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Set aside.  

In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until each is incorporated and scraping down sides of bowl as needed.  Beat in the vanilla.  Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture in three batches, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour.  Beat until combined.

Fill your prepared cupcake pans 3/4 full.  Bake, rotating halfway through, until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.  Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

  5. Beth - I actually used 1% milk because that's what I always have on hand. I'm sure a higher fat milk would produce richer results but they were great with 1%. As for the frosting - I'm actually going to post it later this week or next week. Check back soon!

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
