Vanilla Sweet Hear Cupcakes

This recipe makes up just enough for you and your valentine. So if you are looking for a sweet treat to share then check out this awesome treat recipe

Vanilla Cupcakes (yields 4 cupcakes)

2 egg whites
4 Tbs. sugar
4 Tbs. butter, melted and cooled
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup  cake flour (can sub AP flour if needed)
1/2 heaping tsp. of baking powder
2 pinches of salt
3 Tbs. milk
1.  Line a cupcake pan with 4 cupcake liners.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  In large bowl, whisk together the egg whites and sugar.   Stir in the melted butter and vanilla.

3.  All at once, stir in the flour, baking powder and salt.  Keep stirring until everything is smooth and well-combined.  Add milk and stir until incorporated into the batter.

3.   Fill each cupcake liner with batter.  I love my large cookie scoop for this. If you don’t have one, simply divide the batter evenly between the 4 cupcakes.

4.  Bake  12-14 minutes.  The cupcake should pass the toothpick test.  Cool Completely.
Vanilla Buttercream (frosting for 4 Cupcakes)
4 Tbs. butter, room temperature
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2-3 tsp. heavy cream
1 cup powdered sugar
1.  Beat or stir briskly the butter,  milk and vanilla.
2.  On low, or slowly, add powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time.  Incorporate your powdered sugar before adding the next installment.  Add more milk if needed.
3.  Pipe onto cupcakes and eat!
Cupcakes are best the day they are made.  Refrigerate if you will not be eating them in about 6-8 hours.
