Our lovely sweetpaul delights us once again with new ideas of presentation very useful in our celebrations: cupcakes in cups. Just make sure that the cups are oven safe.
Cupcakes in a cup, makes 8 large cups:
- 1 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened+1 tablespoon for greasing the cups
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup plain flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- Coconut shavings
Preheat oven to 350F and grease 8 large coffee cups.
Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla, flour, baking powder and milk until smooth.
Spoon batters into cup, filling about two-thirds full. Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 12 minutes.
Cool, frost and sprinkle with coconut shavings.
