In honor of all of my blog followers who are waking up to bitter cold temperatures this morning - I'm posting a winter themed cupcake. White chocolate snowflakes, tiny white nonpareils, white sanding sugar and edible pearls on top of a winter white cupcake. Seems like an appropriate way to celebrate the snow and the cold weather.
These snowy cupcakes are flavored with almond and I think you'll agree - they're pretty great.
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup milk
5 egg whites
Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Cream butter and sugar in standing mixer until light and fluffy.
Add extracts and eggs, one at a time.
Add dry ingredients, alternating with milk.
Whisk egg whites in clean bowl of standing mixer until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold egg whites into batter with a rubber scraper.
Scoop batter into paper lined cupcake pans.
Bake 23 minutes at 350. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Frost with vanilla buttercream.
You can also make these cupcakes in mini versions!!
Jumbo cupcakes or minis - you really can't go wrong either way. They are equally cute and delicious.
