How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Line 12 standard muffin cups with paper liners.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt onto a large piece of waxed paper.
  • In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the eggs and sugar for about 2 minutes, or until light and creamy. Add the butter and vanilla and beat on low speed for about 1 minute, or until well blended. Beat in the dry ingredients on low speed until blended. Add the sour cream and beat until smooth and well blended.
  • Fill each cup with about 2 tablespoons of the batter. Bake for about 23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean and the tops are firm. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting: In a large bowl, combine the butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Using the electric mixer on low speed, beat until the mixture begins to come together. Add enough milk, beating on low speed, to make a creamy consistency.
  • Using a metal spatula, apply 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons frosting to each cupcake, forming tiny peaks while turning the cupcake. Garnish with sprinkles. Place on a pretty platter and serve.

    I was really hoping for a great cupcake recipe. This was ok...but not great. Nothing better than what comes from a box mix. Also- the instructions for the frosting arnt exactly correct. You should sift the powdered sugar and gradually add it in - so that you dont "break" the icing. I learned this the hard way and had to run to the store to purchase icing in order to be ready for the party that evening. So out of a 5 star rating- i would give it a 3.

    These are amazing. I had leftover cream cheese frosting and used it on the cupcakes. Wonderful.
