    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This recipe goes back over 20 years, I like the simplicity of this recipe and for a one bowl cupcake they are pretty darn good, 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract may be used in place of the vanilla, using butter in place of shortening will alter the texture it is best to only use shortening --- if you don't have paper liners grease the tins generously or see my Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!)

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cupcakes

    • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup shortening (very soft but not melted, Crisco is best)
    • 3/4 cup milk (or half and half cream)

    • 2 large eggs

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Set oven to 350 degrees F.

    3. 3
      Add in the shortening cream or milk, vanilla and eggs; beat on medium speed of an electric mixer scraping the bowl constantly until just blended (the batter will be thick, if desired you may add in a few more tablespoons cream or milk).
    4. 4
      Pour into paper-lined regular size muffin tins filling under just three-quarters full.
    5. 5
      Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the cupcakes test done (do not overbake as they will be dry).

    8. 8
      *Note* if desired 1-1/2 tsp almond extract may be used instead of vanilla, for a almond flavor.

      These were weird. I followed the recipe exactly. They had a very cornbread like texture. And to my surprise, even a bit of a cornbread taste! ....like a vanilla cornbread. They still tasted alright, just strange. If someone gave me one, I would probably eat it. However, I do not intend to make them again.

      I made this recipe yesterday and they were so horrible I threw them away. They were hollow, greasy, looked like bad yorkshire pudding. Made them again today because DH said I had to have done something wrong. Same results. I was sure it wasn't me because I am a mis en place kinda cook. I thought since it was Kitten they would be perfect. Save yourself the grief and try a different cupcake. DH is trying to take a photo so you can see todays disaster. I am so sorry. We were trying recipes for a wedding shower for 125 people and thank goodness I didn't give the recipe to the helpers. Sorry Kittencal.
