Cooking 00:20 mins

Recipe ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1⁄2 cups sugar (can use 1-1/4 cup for a less sweeter taste ,or can use 3/4 cup splenda)
  • 2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 cup shortening (very soft but not melted, crisco is best)
  • 3⁄4 cup milk (or half and half cream)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla (or use 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract)
  • 2 large eggs

Preparation of the recipe:

Set oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour with sugar, baking powder and salt until combined.

Add in the shortening cream or milk, vanilla and eggs; beat on medium speed of an electric mixer scraping the bowl constantly until just blended (the batter will be thick, if desired you may add in a few more tablespoons cream or milk).

Pour into paper-lined regular size muffin tins filling under just three-quarters full.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the cupcakes test done (do not overbake as they will be dry).

Immediately remove from pans.

Cool completely before frosting.

*Note* if desired 1-1/2 tsp almond extract may be used instead of vanilla, for a almond flavor.
