The Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake
That’s right, I said ultimate. These cupcakes pack some serious vanilla flavor! Between the cupcakes and the frosting I used 2 whole vanilla beans and 3 Tbsp. of vanilla extract. I got the recipe from a cool blog called the Cupcake Project and it turned out pretty fantastic! I brought these to my physics lab today and everyone gobbled them up! The only thing I would change is to add a tad more baking powder and sour cream! they were slightly too dense for my taste but still pretty fantastic! Working with vanilla beans was really cool! It was my first time, I had picked some up at Trader Joe’s over the holidays but hadn’t put them to use yet. This turned out to be the perfect thing for them! The overall taste of the cupcake was luxurious and scrumptious, my boyfriend told me they tasted like vanilla ice cream!
