On Wednesday's this month, I thought I might share some cupcake recipes. Those of you who know me well know that I LOVE to collect recipes. Hope you enjoy and love to all...Sis. D.
Candy Bar Cupcakes
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces fat-free cream cheese
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2 Snickers candy bars (2.07 ounces each), finely chopped
1/3 cup butter, cubed
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons fat-free milk
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, beat the sugar, buttermilk, oil and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended.
For filling, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Stir in the candy bars.
Fill 18 paper-lined muffin cups one-third full with batter. Drop filling by tablespoonfuls into the center of each (cups will be about half full). Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the filling comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil; cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in the milk, then confectioners' sugar. Cool until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cupcakes. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
1 package (14 ounces) banana quick bread and muffin mix
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 tablespoon shortening
In a large bowl, combine the muffin mix, water, sour cream and egg; stir just until moistened. Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Fill greased or paper-lined miniature muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a small microwave-safe bowl, melt shortening and remaining chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Frost cupcakes. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
