Recipe of the Week: One-Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes

As you know, I am still searching for the perfect vanilla cupcake recipe.  I found a one-bowl type recipe to share today.  It turned out pretty good, but is a little dense and pound-cakey for me.  I prefer a delicate texture and crumb for a vanilla cupcake, but this one has excellent vanilla flavor. 

One-Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes

1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare yourcupcake pan with liners. Combine all ingredients in a food processor with the blade attachment. Fill cupcake liners halfway full.

 Bake for 12-15 minutes, checking frequently after 10 minutes.

Vanilla Frosting

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter, at room temperature
1-2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
