I follow a lot of blogs that come up with their own recipes. After making 2 batches of these cupcakes, I know I am not a patient enough person to go through several failures to achieve a recipe. I will just take their perfected ones, I hope they don't mind. :) I found a recipe that claimed to be "the perfect vanilla cupcake," with a title like that, how could I not try it? The recipe warned that it was a thinner batter, so I was prepared for the soup-like texture, but now for the mess that it created.
|This was the first time I was able to use my silicone baking cups, I was excited.|
|Very thin, but this is what it was supposed to look like, right?|
|Aaaand out come these disasters. Blistered tops and the WORST texture I have ever had in a cupcake!|
|Looked sort of like corn bread, but trust me, they tasted like a mix between nothingness and 5 day old sitting out on the counter water. Yeah.|
|I was mad. This is a terrible picture, but it describes my feeling towards these cupcakes perfectly.|
|What a difference in the batter!|
|No soup, just silky vanilla goodness!|
|These came out perfect!|
|Pale, fluffy, perfect!|
|Dollop of frosting that would get flattened for the Batman images.|
recipe turned out amazing! The cupcakes were so silky and fluffy, if I hadn't promised them to Carlson, I would have had no trouble eating them all myself. The frosting was vanilla cream cheese which perfectly complemented the cakes. My work let me purchase some edible images, so I found one that I liked of the Batman logo and used them for the cupcakes.
I can't wait to hear what Carlson thinks of them!!
