My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Mini Vanilla Cupcakes


{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 60 mini cupcakes }

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups cake flour, not self-rising
1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1" cubes
4 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
sprinkles for decorating

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix on low speed until combined. Add butter, mixing until just coated with flour.
2. In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. With mixer on medium speed, add wet ingredients in 3 parts, scraping down sides of bowl before each addition; beat just until ingredients are incorporated.
3. Divide batter evenly among liners, filling about 2/3 full. Bake for 17-20 mins, rotating pan halfway through, until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean.
4. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool completely.
5. Once cupcakes are completely cooled, ice with vanilla buttercream frosting or chocolate buttercream frosting.
