Vanilla Cupcakes for 2

2013 May 6
by admin

I sat down to write this blog post and immediately tried to recall the last time I saw Krystal as a way to introduce the cupcakes I made for her virtual baby shower.



Then I realized that actually I’ve never met Krystal.  Oddly, I totally feel like I have!  I’ve watched her blossom into an awesome mother to their 1 year old little girl; she’s given me advice about what to order at In-N-Out; I’ve seen her excitement swell over the upcoming birth of her baby boy.



I decided to make a recipe for Krystal’s virtual baby shower that Krystal might find useful now that she’s a mom of two under almost-1-year!  This recipe makes a small batch of cupcakes, requires no mixer, and is surprisingly delicious.  The cupcakes bake up in 11 minutes flat, dome perfectly, and quench any craving for sweets.

Krystal and Eric, enjoy your new family of four!  To see more participants in Krystal’s virtual baby shower, check out Eva Bakes.

    Beautiful cupcakes! I need more recipes like these that make a small batch of sweets. Thanks so much for joining me to celebrate Cupcake’s arrival!

    I love that these make such a small batch for when you have that cupcake craving but don’t want to make a dozen! They look wonderful!

  • Krystal R.

    Isn’t that crazy, we might have met in another lifetime and maybe not just yet in this one? We will meet soon enough my friend, but thank you for participating and baking up such an easy recipe for 2. I’m big on sweets and in a time crunch that I’ll be faced with…these will come handy!!

    That’s the awesome thing about our foodie community, without ever meeting “in real life” we form some pretty cool relationships. I can tell you that Krystal is just as cool in person! I love this small batch of cupcakes! What a great idea for small households (says the girl with 8 chocolate cupcakes hanging out in the kitchen just waiting to be devoured). Great contribution!

    Isn’t that so weird… even if we haven’t met in real life, I always talk about you ladies like you’re my next door neighbor. :) Great looking cupcakes – I know Krystal would love them!

    we ALL need to meet! great cupcakes :)

  • Amy

    This is such a smart idea…two cupcakes at a time would be a lot better in my house vs. two dozen!

    Genius to only make 2! They look fabulous!
