These cupcakes are so moist and the frosting is so good.. and I normally do not care for frosting
I made these for my daughters 2nd birthday.
She loves the movie Frozen.. especially Elsa and Ana
so these are Frozen inspired cupcakes
first make your frosting base, in a pan:
1 1/2c sugar, 3/4c flour, 1/4tsp salt, 2 1/4c whole milk (you could probably use half&half too for a more creamy consistancy): bring to slight boil and stir constantly until it thickens. let it cool (in fridge)
next, make your cupcake batter w a hand mixer: Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1 1/4c veg oil, 1 3/4c white sugar, 4 eggs, 1T vanilla, 1 1/2c sour cream- mix these ingredients first
2 1/4c flour, 1/2c corn starch, 1T baking powder, 1tsp salt- add these dry ingredients to wet ingredients. blend well.
finish your frosting while the cupcakes are baking:
take out cooled frosting base and add: 3 sticks (1 1/2c) butter, 1T vanilla and about 1/2c cream cheese (at room temperature)
once your cupcakes are finished cooking: about 18-22min (when a toothpick comes out clear) let them cool before adding frosting.
(add a couple drops of food coloring if you want colored frosting)
you will not regret making these!
makes about 24 or more cupcakes :)
