Vanilla and White Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes

I've recently discovered the joys of buttermilk. It makes everything so much lighter...yet moister too. These cupcakes combine the lightness of buttermilk with the richness of a white chocolate topping. Instead of creating a criss-cross pattern on top, you can simply dunk the whole top of the cupcake in the chocolate for an even chocolatier treat. Alternatively, these cupcakes can be iced and decorated as you desire.


Ingredients

1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla bean paste or 2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk

Method
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan-forced) and prepare around 16 patty cases in a tray. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a seperate bowl, beat together the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat in the egg and the vanilla paste or extract, until mixture is smooth. Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until almost combined. Add buttermilk and stir, again, until almost combined. Add the rest of the flour and stir until all ingredients are mixed in. Spoon batter into cupcake tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. While the cupcakes cool, melt some white chocolate. Once they are completly cooled, drizzle white chocolate on top of them or dip your cupcake to cover the whole top of cake.

  2. You know I really must use buttermilk more. I have only ever used it to make pancakes and fried chicken! Thanks for another great recipe.

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  8. These look lovely. I'm a recent convert to yogurt in cakes and I expect buttermilk has a similar effect.

  17. I think that what you said made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you were to create a awesome post title?
    I ain't suggesting your information is not good., however what if you added something that grabbed a person's attention?
    I mean "Vanilla and White Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes" is kinda vanilla.

    You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write article headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've written.
    Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit
    more interesting.
