Take Six Cupcakes

Take Six Cupcakes

This is the most delicious scratch white cake recipe.  

3/4 C Crisco ( I use unsalted butter)

1 3/4 C sugar

3 eggs, 1 at a time

3C flour

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 1/4 C milk

1 tsp vanilla

Mix Crisco and sugar, add eggs, one at a time.  Add dry ingredients alternately with milk.  Add vanilla.

Bake @ 325 for 45-60 minutes

You can make a 9x13, or 2- 8" rounds, or 24 cupcakes.  

Butter Frosting

1 C unsalted butter

1/2 tsp salt

8-10 C icing sugar (depending on how stiff you want it)

3/4 C milk (add a little at a time)

2 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and salt.  Add sugar gradually alternating with milk.  Beat until smooth.  Add more milk or icing sugar if necessary.  Add vanilla.  

I had a little left over after frosting 24 of these cupcakes. 

Make these with caution.   Because I bet you can't eat just one! ;0)
