Here is our family favorite! Play close attention to the directions because it is the dry ingredients that go in the mixer first! These are sooo yummy, that we even eat them without icing on them! Enjoy!

One Egg Cupcakes

2 c. All Purpose flour
1-1/4 c Sugar
2-1/2 ts. Baking Powder
1 ts. Salt
1/3 c. Crisco, shortening
1 ts. Vanilla, PURE
1 c. Milk
1 large egg

Directions:

1. Preheat top oven to 400*. Line cupcake pans with paper 24 baking cups.

2. In your mixer, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add Crisco and 2/3 c. of the milk. Scrape sides of bowl well.

3. Beat for 2 minutes. Add remainder of the milk, add the vanilla and the egg. Beat 2 additional minutes. Scrape sides of bowl well.

4. Bake cupcakes for 15-18 minutes.

Hey I just thought I would let you know that I had 1 cupcake left out of 24 my family devoured them. icon_smile.gif

MrsMissey Posted 19 Feb 2006 , 2:58pm

LOL...wow, sounds like they REALLY liked them! Either that or you have a really big family!! Did you put icing on them or no? Sometimes, I sprinkle them with powdered suger for a change!

jackie64 Posted 19 Feb 2006 , 7:16pm

I made a chocolate frosting from scratch with bakers unsweetened chocolate and piped it on with a star tip. I do have 2 brothers and 2 nephews with huge appetites they gobbled them right up . Of course my dad and mom and other family members joined in to try them .They made several comments on how good they were . I gave you all the credit for the recipe . I know I will be making cupcakes all the time now when I make something they really like they always ask for more I dont mind though its that love of family thing. icon_biggrin.gif

This seems like a great recipe! Is there a way I can replace the Crisco for something else, since that isn't that easy to come by where I live (the Netherlands)?

jackie64 Posted 22 Feb 2006 , 2:26am

You could probably use butter. I think it would work without a problem. icon_smile.gif

I tried this recipe this morning and I used cooking margarine because I can't get crisco here. I must say these are the lightest, fluffiest cupcakes I've ever made.
Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

MrsMissey Posted 12 Mar 2006 , 3:27am

..glad you liked them! Thanks for letting me know they can be made with margarine..it's good to know!

gcc Posted 12 Mar 2006 , 3:32am

No worries thumbs_up.gif
Now all I have to find is something I can replace for crisco in MMF, I think that might be harder.
Karen

MrsMissey Posted 12 Mar 2006 , 3:41am

icon_confused.gif ..there is no crisco in MMF...jut water, marshmallows and powdered sugar. Crisco is just used to keep it from sticking to surfaces and hands...you could certainly sub margarine there too!

gcc Posted 12 Mar 2006 , 5:09am

sorry my mistake, I mean Faux Fondant.

sunlover00 Posted 4 Apr 2006 , 2:41am

Is this a yellow cake or white-ish? Could you make it chocolate and keep the consistancy?

PurplePetunia Posted 4 Apr 2006 , 2:48am

I also tried this recipe and it was very good. It was nice and fluffy and light and more white than yellow.

Thanks MrsMissy for sharing.

Can this be used as a cake instead of cupcakes? Has anyone tried this?

Thanks

MrsMissey Posted 4 Apr 2006 , 9:58am

..I used this a few time to bake a 9 x 13 but I forget how long it took to bake.

PurplePetunia Posted 4 Apr 2006 , 10:28pm

Great! I'll definitely give it a try.

Thanks! thumbs_up.gif

lilthorner Posted 10 Jun 2006 , 1:29am
