Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (reduced-fat buttermilk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 2 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • chocolate "jimmy" sprinkles
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Line a cupcake pan with 6 liners.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with sugar, then add in the egg and mix well on low-medium speed. (or use a whisk to hand mix as I do)
  4. Add in the flour with baking powder, baking soda.
  5. Begin to mix and add in the buttermilk and vanilla until completely combine on low- medium speed.
  6. Portion out the batter with a 3 tablespoon scoop into each cupcake portion.
  7. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Allow cupcakes to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then remove the cupcakes and allow them to cool on a cooling rack.
  9. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting them.
Make the frosting by whipping the butter and cream cheese smooth, then add in the powdered sugar and vanilla.
  1. Place the frosting into a piping bag fitted with a large round such as an #809.
  2. Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes by piping the outer edge around in a few circles making each circle smaller to reach a cone shape.
  3. Apply sprinkles as desired.
