I love E.L. Fudge cupcakes a lot! In fact I ask Matthew to buy them frequently. The last time I had asked him to bring them home he got single stuff, can you believe that?! Who doesn’t buy double stuff? That was my question? He then told me that they were cheaper. Then I came home the next day mind in my business talking on the phone with a friend and I stuck my hand in the package to get a cookie and found this little lovely….
I could not stop laughing. He then proceeded to tell me that it’s Mega Stuff. He was just giving me what I had wanted. That’s real love people I am just saying. Anyways, so we decided to make our own version of what a cupcake would taste like. Then we could put all the frosting we want on it! So here is our yummy version of the cupcakes.
Butter Cupcake Recipe
1 1/2 cups butter room
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In mixer cream butter and
sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each
addition. Mix in vanilla flavor. In a separate bowl mix flour with baking
powder and salt. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, starting with the
flour. Pour about a tablespoon into each cupcake well. Bake for about 20-25
minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes in pan on
rack before taking out of the pan. Set aside and make the frosting while it
Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
5 – 6 cups confectioners sugar, sifted (add more for thicker frosting)
1/4 cups of milk (add more for thinner frosting)
In a large bowl, mix together shortening and butter with electric mixer. Gradually add
in cocoa. Add vanilla.
Carefully mix in sugar, one cup at a time. Scrape sides of the bowl every so often. Add
milk until the frosting is fluffy. If you want your frosting to be stiffer, add a little more
sugar until it’s the texture you desire. Remember that if it’s too stiff it’s hard squeeze
out of the frosting bag. Enjoy these I know that we did!!
