ServingsMakes 12 Cupcakes
- 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 Stick Un-Salted Butter, softened
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/8 tsp Salt
- 1 1/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/3 Cup Whole MilkFor the Frosting:
- 1 Stick of Unsalted Butter, softened
- ½ cup Raspberry Preserves
- ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 16oz Box of Powdered Sugar
- Fresh Raspberries, for garnishing
1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your cupcake tin with liners and set aside.
2) In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla and cream together until you get a smooth mixture. Add the dry ingredients and with the speed on low mix together and slowly add the milk and just mix everything to combine. DO NOTOVERMIX! Make sure you give everything a good stir with a spatula from the bottom to incorporate any bit that wasn’t mixed.
3) Scoop the batter into your lined cupcake tin, make sure its only filled ¾ of the way up because they will rise. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool for about 45 minutes before frosting.
4) To make the frosting combine together all the frosting ingredients except the fresh raspberries and mix together to combine. Add the frosting in a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. Top with a few fresh raspberries and dive in!
5) These little beauties are so delicious and beautiful that I promise you everybody is going to think that you went to a fancy shmancy bakery and bought them. I make these very often because they always get a wow reaction from everybody and of course they are delicious!
