I know, I KNOW!!! I’m on a cupcake kick right now! Just enjoy it, it will pass. I just had to share one of my all time favorite white cake recipes. I love the taste of this cake and I triple-dipple love the texture. I’ve made it maybe a dozen times and every time there is one teensey-weensy little issue. While it’s baking in the oven the batter always lifts up to the sky, bubbles over the sides and falls leaving a crater in the center. I’ve tried a few tricks like lightly slamming the batter filled cupcake pan on the counter top several times before placing it in the oven. This is supposed to get any bubbles out but it doesn’t work. I’ve also messed with the amount of baking powder but to no avail.
Why oh why would I want to share my tragic cupcakes that turn out looking like this with you?
Because, my dear readers, it is still a luscious tasting experience. AND the last time I made them I added something that made them even better! Remember the chocolate cupcakes that had the rich drop of ganache in the center? Well now I’m doing something similar with these! » » »
