I am looking for a yellow cupcake recipe that has a soft cakelike texture, one from scratch. Thanks Jackie icon_biggrin.gif

Here is our family favorite! Play close attention to the directions because it is the dry ingredients that go in the mixer first! These are sooo yummy, that we even eat them without icing on them! Enjoy!

One Egg Cupcakes

2 c. All Purpose flour
1-1/4 c Sugar
2-1/2 ts. Baking Powder
1 ts. Salt
1/3 c. Crisco, shortening
1 ts. Vanilla, PURE
1 c. Milk
1 large egg

Directions:

1. Preheat top oven to 400*. Line cupcake pans with paper 24 baking cups.

2. In your mixer, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add Crisco and 2/3 c. of the milk. Scrape sides of bowl well.

3. Beat for 2 minutes. Add remainder of the milk, add the vanilla and the egg. Beat 2 additional minutes. Scrape sides of bowl well.

4. Bake cupcakes for 15-18 minutes.

LOL...wow, sounds like they REALLY liked them! Either that or you have a really big family!! Did you put icing on them or no? Sometimes, I sprinkle them with powdered suger for a change!

I made a chocolate frosting from scratch with bakers unsweetened chocolate and piped it on with a star tip. I do have 2 brothers and 2 nephews with huge appetites they gobbled them right up . Of course my dad and mom and other family members joined in to try them .They made several comments on how good they were . I gave you all the credit for the recipe . I know I will be making cupcakes all the time now when I make something they really like they always ask for more I dont mind though its that love of family thing. icon_biggrin.gif

This seems like a great recipe! Is there a way I can replace the Crisco for something else, since that isn't that easy to come by where I live (the Netherlands)?

You could probably use butter. I think it would work without a problem. icon_smile.gif
