Preciously Minty Pink Vanilla Mini Cupcakes

Magnolia bakery recipe – found at What the Fruitcake?!
Yield: 100 mini cupcakes


  • 1 ½ cups self rising flour
  • 1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt

The How To:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • In a small bowl whisk the flours together
  • Combine the milk and vanilla extract (it’s easy to do this if you have a pyrex glass measuring cup)
  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar and butter until awesome
  • Add eggs 1 at a time
  • Alternate adding the flour mixture/milk mixture – starting and ending with the flour mixture. (No, I don’t know why :P)
  • Spoon the batter into your cupcake cups (hopefully with awesome mini liners like I have!) and bake them for 12-14 minutes.

For the frosting:

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 16oz box of confectioners sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tbsp milk (add as needed)

For this, same as usual – soften the butter first and use a mixer/hand mixer to mix all the ingredients until they are whipped/can hold it’s own shape. And tastes amazing.

Then, for the finishing touch, roll the tops of your little treats in some peppermint shavings like I got at crate and barrel!

I think this is the happiest I’ve been with a vanilla cake recipe in a long time – I’ll definitely use this one again. Super moist and flavorful!

I hope all my followers are having a happy holiday season so far! <3
Until next recipe
