Check out the cupcake spectacular!

Cupcakes Spectacular 2008

Just ask my two year old and five year old.

I am so excited. This is the first recipe for a sweet treat that I made up by myself. AND I had success.

I have always liked recipes with sour cream in them. They always seemed to come out very moist. So...


1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons coconut oil
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sugar
2 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 F. Cream butter and sugar. Mix until light and fluffy. Add coconut and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Combine dry ingredients: flour, salt and baking powder. Mix into wet batter alternately with milk and sour cream. Fill greased mini muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for about 12 minutes. Makes about 48 little minis.

Yum! They look delicious!
Great job on your first recipe! It's a lot trickier doing a recipe for a baked good.
And thanks for your vote! :-)
