Sometimes you just need a cupcake. Or a few cupcakes. I feel that I need cupcakes often, but it’s rare that I actually need a dozen, full-size cupcakes. Unless I have a party to take them to, making a whole batch of cupcakes can often end in disaster, with me deciding that a cupcake with coffee is a great breakfast, a cupcake with a side of fruit is a perfect lunch, and dinner is best concluded by eating another two cupcakes, and so on for the next few days.
That’s why I love small-batch baking.
This delicious recipe for a small batch of easy vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting comes from Asiya at Chocolate and Chillies. I was assigned her blog for my first month participating in the Secret Recipe Club, and had so much fun perusing her recipe index and deciding what to cook (if you haven’t heard of the SRC, it’s basically a club where each month you’re assigned a blog to cook from, and someone else is assigned your blog, and it’s a fun surprise on the reveal day to see who had your blog and what they decided to make).
