I found a recipe that makes cupcakes for two on the site How Sweet It Is. This recipe is perfect for when you want to satisfy a sweet tooth craving and don't want to make two dozen cupcakes. I thought this idea was genius, so I gave it a try! I did end up making a few alterations to the cooking time, and my cupcakes weren't as light a fluffy as the one's from the website, but I think they were a success anyway!
Cupcakes for Two
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/4 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 2 liners.
In a bowl, add egg white and sugar and whisk until combined. Add in vanilla and melted butter and stir until mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir until smooth. Stir in milk. Divide batter equally between the 2 cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until cake is set. Let cool completely, then frost as desired.
*I added at least 5 minutes to the cooking time, be sure to check that your cupcakes are baked through with a toothpick
I made these for my boyfriend and I as a yummy dessert and "frosted" them with a piping bag of Nutella. So yummy!
Give them a try!
