As a newbie to the “blogger life” I’m still looking for inspiration and ideas wherever I can find it
This had me stumbling across a very interesting post from a fellow blogger featuring a recipe that makes only 2 cupcakes! YES, I said TWO! Sceptical I was for sure, because as a single woman who really can’t afford to eat a whole dessert on her own, I’ve tried several quick and easy recipes for one. Cake in a mug, mousse for one, the list goes on. These quick recipes always end up with half the cake sticking to the side of the cup or it being so rubbery you could bounce it all the way to Timbuku.
I am not one to give up on satisfying my sweet tooth though and figured why no?
Armed with one small bowl, whisk, 1/4 size measuring cup, measuring spoon and I was ready to bake. These measuring cups are amazing I need to add, stackable, clips out, easy to clean and doesn’t take up a lot of space in my drawers. Available online – just click to view in our store.
Took me all of 5 minutes to mix all the ingredients and get them in the oven and another minute to quickly wash up.
Well let me tell you – these One bowl vanilla cupcakes by Jessica How Sweet Eats are amazing!! Soft and a real hit of vanilla. Topped with Chocolate Buttercream Icing I had left over in the fridge, these were absolutely delicious. Needless to say I’m a HUGE fan and will recommend this to all my single friends. It makes 2 servings which in my reality is only one, because let’s face it who really eats only one cupcake. For those with kids, these are also great to whip up if you have them running circles around you screaming for cake
I do always take things a step further and wanted to see if I could adjust this recipe to make a chocolate variation and even tried a gluten and dairy free version. All worked perfectly and really is a fail proof recipe. So now there really is no reason to NOT bake your cupcake and eat it too!
I’ve included my adapted gluten and dairy free Chocolate recipe below for you to try. Avo can be substituted for 1 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter (I have not tried this myself) and if you are not a fan of coconut, don’t worry you won’t even taste it!
