This month, our recipe for Secret Recipe Club comes from Maxine from Why Am I Not Skinny, which is a fantastic blog name. I like to bake and she has a lot of dessert recipes. It was hard to decide what to make.
But for this month’s recipe…the cupcake is a vanilla cupcake with a buttercream frosting. And also the ingredients were in American and metric, which is great because I was too lazy to convert the ingredients. It made me laugh because she also mentions in her blog post about how great it is to not have to convert to metric!
In Maxine’s bio she talks about how she believes that we have a 2nd stomach for desserts and sweets. When my daughter Jessica was little, she told us she had a regular stomach and a dessert stomach, and it is still a running joke in our family. Must be some truth to that.
The vanilla cupcakes are simple to make. The only thing I did not have was a lemon for the zest so I omitted that, but they were still delicious. They bake up quickly. While the cupcakes are cooling the buttercream frosting can be made. Frost them. Decorate them if you want.
Sit down and take a break and have a sweet treat.
