DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. At least 2 minutes, longer with a hand held mixer.
  • Mix in eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl with each addition.
  • Add vanilla.
  • Add salt and baking powder and mix just until combined.
  • Incorporate flour, mixture will be thick.
  • Add in half and half and mix thoroughly.
  • Original directions say to divide batter into 12 cupcakes, I got 14 and they were all filled well.
  • Bake 18 to 20 minute If you are new to baking with your oven check them at 16 minute Mine were done in 18. I checked mine with a toothpick, needs to come out clean.
  • Cool cupcakes.
  • To make frosting, allow both the butter and cream cheese to come to room temperature. If it is a hot day don't let them get too warm.
  • Cream the butter and cream cheese for at least 3 minute You should NOT be able to tell that you have 2 ingredients in the bowl. You want a light yellow color with a fluffy look.
  • Add powdered sugar one cup at a time, incorporating well. Don't forget to scrape the bowl frequently! :).
  • Add vanilla and 2 tablespoons of half and half. Check consistency for frosting, add more half and half until you are happy with the thickness of your frosting.
  • Frost and enjoy.
