Don’t you just love surprises? I think I may have been more tickled about this surprise than the birthday recipient herself, but that’s alright. (Her curiosity got the best of her) So what myself and another friend did was make dinner and dessert to be delivered to her doorstep. Delicious lasagna and cupcakes anyone?
For my portion of the surprise, I made vanilla bean cupcakes using a recipe I found on My Baking Addiction’s blog. This was the second time I’ve attempted the recipe as it was a bit dry, so my husband says. I have to agree, they aren’t as moist as other cupcake recipes, and it could be from the type of cake flour I use (Softasilk). I did make a few changes to the ingredients list and maybe with a third attempt I will have perfected it to my liking.
I suggest trying out the recipe she gives on her blog first. I don’t want to take the experience from you. Who knows, maybe it will work better for you! Then come back here and let me know how it turns out. 🙂
