One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes for Two

I got the hankering for sweets one night and I didn't really have anything in the house. I figured I would just have to suck it up and get over my craving. I had been working on cooking through my Pinterest boards and I saw these cupcakes. I immediately ran into my kitchen to see if I had the ingredients on hand.

Clearly, I did! I used leftover rum frosting from my pumpkin cinnamon rolls for the topping and some pretty diamond-like sparkly sprinkles. My mom just sent me some decorating stuff and I wanted to use them. I finally made pretty looking cupcakes! I was starting to think that I didn't inherit my mom's talent for decorating cakes!

What you need:
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. milk
  1. Whisk together egg white and sugar.
  2. Add butter and vanilla and whisk together.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; stir until smooth.
  4. Stir in milk.
  5. Divide into 2 cupcake liners.
  6. Bake at 350* for 10 to 12 minutes.
  7. Frost, if desired. I used leftover rum frosting from my pumpkin cinnamon rolls.

What a fun idea to just make two cupcakes... then I won't eat all the left overs! :)

I love this! Every time I make cupcakes I make 24 and holy cow the last thing I need in the house is 24 freaking cupcakes. This looks perfect.

LOVE that it's only for two since I'm notorious for eating cupcake after cupcake. Self-control? What's that? These are so pretty, too!

These look delicious! I need to try one of these types of recipes as my boyfriend and I are the only ones in the house. When too many sweets are around, I end up eating too many! Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!
