I know a lot of people who just love the box mix of Funfetti cupcakes, they have everlasting memories of this cake or cupcake. While I do not share the everlasting childhood memories of this Funfetti greatness, I have come to appreciate their love for this cake. I just knew for cupcake week I wanted to make Made from Scratch Funfetti Cupcakes.
1/2 cup milk
3 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp butter, soft
2 tbsp rainbow confetti sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 350F.Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
- In a measuring cup, whisk together milk, egg whites and extracts. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, Stir to combine. Cut in butter with the paddle attachment of an electric mixer at low speed or cut in by hand with a pastry blender, until mixture is coarse and sandy. Add milk mixture and beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl and continue beating for 20-30 seconds. Stir in sprinkles.
- Divide batter evenly into prepared tin. Bake for for 15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting.
Also when choosing your sprinkles for this confetti cupcake, you need to make sure you use these kind of sprinkles…These are called Confetti Sprinkles, these sprinkles is where the Funfetti Cupcakes got their name, These sprinkles melt as the cake bakes, leaving behind color and no trace of what was once a sprinkle. If you don’t use this style of confetti sprinkles, like if you use round sprinkles you will get a funky colored cupcake because all the other style sprinkles just bleed and change the white cupcake into a pastel Tye-dye, which may be cool if that is your intention. Just thought I would let you all know this so that you would get the desired expectation.
I searched all over to find the Funfetti Cupcake recipe I wanted to go with and I ended up with this one from Baking Bites. This cupcake has such a light and moist texture, They really are addictive.
I frosted these Funfetti Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting, which is an awesome frosting and then added some more sprinkles to the top. Seriously these cupcakes are wonderful bliss!
