Art Eats Bakery, Greenville, SC http://www.arteatsbakery.com/
Our cake recipes are a very closely guarded secret. However we would like to start sharing some of our other recipes that are easy to make at home. We do not have a regular retail bakery, so these yummy treats are not available in our bakery. We only make specialty cakes that are baked to order. We will also include some savory recipes. I will try to give you two recipes a week.
Cookies and cream cupcakes
2 -1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 – 2/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temp.)
3 egg whites (room temp.)
1 cup milk (room temp.)
2 teaspoons real vanilla
1 cup crushed chocolate sandwich cookies plus some for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper baking cups.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in bowl and set aside.
Beat butter until light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Add sugar and beat about 1 minute on medium. Add egg whites and beat 1 minute.
Add the flour mixture, vanilla and milk and beat on low about a minute keeping the sides and bottom scraped. Add the cookies and stir in.
Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full and bake 20 – 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool and frost with your favorite icing or use the butter cream recipe that follows. then sprinkle with more cookie crumbs.
Basic butter cream
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 (16 ounce) package of 10X powdered sugar, sifted
2 Teaspoons of you favorite flavoring
3 tablespoons of milk
Beat butter untill creamy, gradually add the powdered sugar while beating. It will seem dry when it is all added. Add liquids gradually while beating. The longer you beat it, the fluffier it will become.
We hope you will enjoy making and eating these delicous little morsels. This is a great recipe to make with kids.
