I just bought a muffin pan and really wanted to try my hand at some cupcakes. Unfortunately, I don’t have mixer or most the materials required to make most cupcakes however I did have everything needed to make the following recipe (except vanilla extract) and it’s super easy.
Original recipe: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,196,138166-225200,00.html
Slightly Orange Cupcakes
1/2 c. softened reduced fat margarine
1 c. sugar
1.5 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 c. orange juice
dash of milk
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream margarine and sugar. Add in one egg at a time, mixing in between.
In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
Mix dry ingredients into sugar/butter mixture. Stir in orange juice and milk.
Bake for 18-24 mins.
I glazed the cupcakes with a little orange juice and plan to frost them tomorrow with vanilla frosting.
These came out okay. I was hoping they’d be a little more orange-y, but they still taste good — a little tangy and sweet.
Taking them to a superbowl party tomorrow, hopefully people like them. 🙂
