“Parade” Cupcakes

Jul 24, 2019Cupcakes Recipes

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cake flour, (not self-rising), sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 cup nonfat buttermilk
  • Cream Cheese Frosting for “Parade” Cupcakes
  • 1/2 pint blueberries, for decorating
  • 1/2 pint raspberries, for decorating
  • White sprinkles and nonpareils, for decorating

Instructions:

  1. 1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two twelve-holed muffin pans with baking cups; set aside. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. 2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until pale, light, and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. With the mixer running, add the eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract; beat until combined.
  3. 3. With mixer on low speed, add 1 cup reserved flour mixture; mix until combined. Add 1/2 cup buttermilk; combine. Alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk, ending with flour, until all has been incorporated.
  4. 4. Fill each baking cup with 1/4 cup batter; batter should almost reach tops of cups. Bake until a cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer tins to a wire rack to cool.
  5. 5. Remove the cupcakes from tins, and frost with cream-cheese frosting. If desired, use a pastry bag fitted with a plain writing tip to pipe letters or designs onto cupcakes. Decorate with berries, sprinkles, and nonpareils.
