Every week we’ll post a recipe that we both made. This week’s recipe was Vanilla Bean Cupcakes. Printable recipe can be found at the bottom of this post. The original recipe can be found over at Annie’s Eats.
This week’s recipe was my choice. I’d love to tell you how I stumbled across it – I have some vague recollection of a commenter mentioning them, but it’s entirely possible that I saw it on my own and thought it sounded good, since Annie’s Eats is one of the food blogs I check out on the regular. (Also, I searched the comments and didn’t find the recipe linked or mentioned, so I guess it’s more likely that I found it on my own.)
I guess it’s just going to remain a fascinating mystery, how I discovered this recipe.
ANYway. Your ingredients:
Cake flour, baking powder, salt, 1 vanilla bean, butter, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
Mix your dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt – together in a medium bowl and then set it aside.
Put your butter in a large mixing bowl, and then split your vanilla bean, length-wise, scrape out the seeds, and add it to the butter.
May I just take a moment to say that vanilla beans smell SO DAMN GOOD, but holy CRAP are they expensive. I think two vanilla beans were almost $9 at the grocery store. You can (and I have) get them cheaper online, but I didn’t have any on hand and had to shell out the bucks for them.
Beat your butter and vanilla bean seeds together ’til everything’s light and creamy, then scrape down the bowl and beat for another minute.
I followed the instructions exactly, but this was about the point where I wanted to throw myself on the floor and have a temper tantrum. Is there anything more borrrrrrrrrrring than waiting for that one minute to be over? One minute of waiting for the mixer time is like 15 minutes in real time, I swear.
But look at those vanilla bean seeds, distributed through the butter and looking all yummy.
I did not take any pictures of the rest of this process because I was too busy bitching about having to wait for shit to mix. GOD. LIKE I HAVE TIME TO STAND AROUND AND WAIT FOR THIS SHIT. (Spoiler: I DO have time to stand around and wait for this shit, because I am not that important. But I am also a whiny bitch. I know – shocking, right?)
Basically, once your butter and vanilla bean seeds are mixed, you add the sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, beating for 1 minute after each addition.
Then you mix in the eggs, one at a time, until the egg is completely mixed in, then scrape down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
(IS IT OVER YET?!)
Then combine the buttermilk and extract together in a measuring cup, and with the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients (the flour and baking powder and salt you set aside earlier) and the wet ingredients (aforementioned buttermilk and vanilla extract) alternately, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Don’t overmix, ’cause you’ll end up with tough cupcakes and then you’ll have to put them in tight t-shirts and teach them to sing the Jet Song. Probably they’d need to learn to smoke, too.
In this recipe, you’re supposed to own things like “cupcake paper liners,” but I do not. I also only have one cupcake tin (some people call it a cupcake tin, I call it a muffin tin, mmhmmm), so I sprayed the hell out of the cups with Baker’s Joy and hoped for the best.
As those cupcakes were cooking, I remembered that I do have two six-cup silicone muffin pans, so I sprayed those with Baker’s Joy and filled ’em up.
I don’t know what the deal was, but the cupcakes in the regular tin cooked faster than the ones in the silicone pan, but the ones in the silicone pan were less ugly than the ones in the regular tin.
MYSTERIES ABOUND THIS WEEK AT DCEP, Y’ALL. Someone call the Scooby Gang!
Silicone-pan cupcakes on the top, regular tin-baked cupcakes on the bottom.
I let ’em cool, and then I made frosting. Because I am a dumbass who let the supply of confectioner’s sugar run low, I made a half batch of my favorite frosting recipe – this one right here – and added a tablespoon of cocoa to it, so we’d have chocolate frosting. Then I stuffed the frosting in a plastic sandwich bag, cut off a corner of the bag, and piped (glopped) frosting onto the cupcakes.
I totally meant to make it look like that. I swear it! (LIE.)
The verdict? First of all, I think that maybe I need to realize that I’m just not a cupcake person. They’re such a pain in the ass to eat and I always end up with frosting on my nose. I guess I’m really more of a cake person.
These cupcakes were okay, but I don’t know that I loved them that much. They didn’t knock me over with flavorful vanilla yumminess. I might have liked them much better if I’d just used the batter to make a cake instead. (I should add here that the batter, before baking, was outstanding and I should have just eaten it that way.) Fred was kind of lukewarm on them, too – but the chickens (and the dogs, who each got an unfrosted cupcake) thought they were pretty awesome!

Let me start out by saying that in order for me to make this recipe I had to pay $13.78 for TWO (2) freaking vanilla beans. And we’re not even going to discuss how much gas I wasted trying to track these fuckers down.
A while ago I bought powdered buttermilk because I hate making a special trip to the store just to get it (see: biscuit recipe). I also thought it would be handy for the thousands of recipes out there that call for buttermilk. I guess I was wildly optimistic since I haven’t made shit that involved buttermilk until now. This is me showing you what it looked like before I mixed it. Shake yo’ shit in a jar (with a lid!) and call it done. I didn’t even need to plug in my immersion blender. Imagine that.
Cake flour is another thing I do not keep in stock. $3.89 – I don’t know if that’s a good price or not. I was just annoyed that I was buying special flour, but seeing the recipe for raspberry cake on the back helped ease my mind. I’m going to have to try it since The FredMonster (aka: Robyn’s husband) never made his special raspberry cake for on here.
Pro-tip: Paper-clips aren’t just for the office. I use them all the time in the kitchen.
I scraped the shit out of that vanilla bean in order to get my $6.89 worth!
Whipped butter with vanilla beans. I know that you’re impressed.
I was a little annoyed with this recipe because the original author wrote it with the implication that everyone owns a KitchenAid mixer. Not everyone has $300-$500 to blow on a kitchen mixer for chrissakes! Full Disclosure: I own the 6-quart mother of all KitchenAid mixers. But I still sincerely think that a lot of food bloggers are being pretentious and downright ridiculous with their inspired recipes. Two perfect examples: Vanilla beans, but then you have to add a tablespoon of vanilla extract (because everyone knows that a vanilla bean straight out of the pod doesn’t really flavor shit). Or the use of a KitchenAid mixer along with the special paddle attachment? I have one of those, too. DID NOT NEED. I used my good ol’ General Electric mixer that I bought at a thrift store.
My point is that our aunts, mothers, grandmother’s, etc., did not have all these bullshit implements and yet they still managed to make great food. I don’t want anyone that is sitting out there without a KitchenAid thinking that they can’t make these freaking cupcakes.
Behind the scenes at DCEP: All this and I still can’t take a decent picture. This recipe, once you get past the pretentious bullshit, was easy to make.
More full disclosure: I was not about to add to the cost of these cupcakes so I just bought a can of frosting instead of making my usual recipe. I do not like sprinkles, but this can was on sale. I already spent $13.78 on vanilla beans, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?
One of the real reasons why I don’t enjoy making cupcakes. There is something in my DNA that sends my brain into a tailspin when batter doesn’t go perfectly into the liner. Those drips on the sides of the liner up there made me feel like I had to go lay down with a wet cloth on my head.
Baked for exactly 18 minutes.
As you can see, Waldo is fascinated with what was going on in the kitchen. It’s really kind of embarrassing having a doofus for a cat.
Meet the newest member of Dysfunction Junction! Waldo loves her and they are best buds. If you’re following me on my Facebook, you already know who this is, but I’ll give the quick and dirty version for others.
My son picked up a stray that was walking across the bridge late at night. It had a collar with a license on it. The dog was in such bad shape that we thought the vet would euthanize it when we took it to be seen the next day. We also contacted the owner through the county that it was registered and they denied, denied, denied owning it! I’m guessing that a 12-year old beagle that has been bred to death, is deaf and blind in one eye isn’t worth much anymore. Nevermind the yeast and bacterial infections, along with being just plain ravaged and scarred (not photographed because I’m projecting vanity on her). Blech, this is a food blog – I will bitch no more. Just know that in my heart I’m a hating whore and I really think that some people should be jailed for what they do to animals.
Two weeks later. It’s amazing what food, medicine and lots of care by humans can do. She’s not completely healed, but she’s doing so much better.
Trey insisted on naming her Peace. Something about her going through a war, blahblabhblah. It doesn’t matter because she can’t hear us call her name. We do a lot of waving our hands now, but we have to make sure we’re on the side of her good eye. She’s such a sweetheart that none of us really mind the hassle.
Half-blind beagle immediately steps on cupcake and then flings it.
Is eating it although foot in foreground is stuffed full of tie-dyed icing.
Peace thought it was good. Everyone else in the family said that the cupcake was TOO DAMN DRY. I baked them for the minimum amount of time so it’s not like the dryness was due to over baking. This recipe is getting shit-canned and the search for the perfect cupcake recipe will continue.
PS: I can’t make a pretty cupcake to save my life.
- 3 c. cake flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
- 16 Tablespoons unsalted butter (also known as 1 cup or 2 sticks), at room temperature
- 2 c. granulated sugar
- 5 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1¼ c. buttermilk, at room temperature
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two cupcake pans with paper liners OR spray cups with cooking spray (I recommend Baker's Joy)
- In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together and set aside.
- Add butter to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Scrape the vanilla bean seeds into the bowl of the mixer and discard the pod. Beat on medium-high speed for 3 minutes, until light and creamy colored. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat for one more minute.
- Add the sugar to the butter mixture, ¼ c. at a time, beating 1 minute after each addition.
- Add the eggs one at a time until well mixed in; scrape down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
- Combine the buttermilk and vanilla extract in a measuring cup or bowl. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with wet ingredients, beginning and ending with the dry. Mix just until incorporated; do not overmix. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for 15 seconds longer.
- Divide the batter between the prepared paper liners or sprayed cups, filling each about ⅔ of the way full.
- Bake 18 - 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Allow to cool in the pans 5 - 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Replace paper liners (or wipe out used tin and re-spray with cooking spray) and bake remaining batter if desired.
- Frost cooled cupcakes as desired.
Robyn- Why don’t you eat your cupcakes with a fork, like cake? So sad this recipe didn’t get thumbs up. It sounds so yummy.
Because cupcakes tip over when you try cutting into them with a fork. Or is it just me?
I don’t know what kind of weeble cupcakes you’ve been eating…it’s just you.
Use a second, large fork to pin the cupcake down for the other fork.
The best cupcakes I’ve ever made are a Barefoot Contessa recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/chocolate-cupcakes-and-peanut-butter-icing-recipe/index.html
Super moist and I get rave reviews every time I bring them somewhere.
I’m sad these didn’t turn out so great as there is nothing so good as a tasty vanilla cupcake (unless it’s a chocolate cupcake…)
That recipe sounds good, but I like vanilla the best. There has got to be a good vanilla cupcake recipe out there.
And I learned something (ha!) – there is a “white” frosting and a “vanilla” frosting. But I can’t figure out what the “white” frosting would taste like. It’s driving me nuts!
They all taste like sugar to me. Robyn’s chocolate frosting up there is making me want to try chocolate frosting with Hershey syrup. I hate food blogs, I’m gonna weigh 500 pounds!
You need to get a while lab coat and bring in neighbors or kids in to be your guinea pigs…er test subjects…tasters. White lab coats are slimming.
A clipboard is also a must.
I wonder if white frosting really is just vanilla? I love that hard vanilla icing that is found on some pastries. Our Polish neighborhood bakery in Philly had these long prune filled things with the hard white icing. There are these cookie things here called black and whites that have half chocolate and half white icing. The consistency varies but the white or vanilla one is usually much firmer. I think they are a North Jersey or NY thing. I never had one or heard of them until I met my husband who is from Bergen County way up by NY. They do sell them here at the shore but they weren’t a Philly/Pennsy thing as far as I can tell. I LOVE that hard white icing to death. I prefer a good vanilla cake or cupcake too. I have a big large vanilla pound cake recipe if you ever want it. Feeds a crowd and is great to take places. It came from The Pennsylvania Grange Cookbook my Aunt bought somewhere in Berks County, PA where she lives. My family has been making it for over 25 years and we all love it.
I need a big large vanilla pound cake recipe, please. Just send it to me, Annette, cause poor Robyn shouldn’t have to bake a big ol’ thing for just her and Fred.
Maybe it’s ’cause I haven’t had my mocha yet, but my first thought upon seeing the top photo was “poo frosting!” I dig the purple plate, though! I’m on the cupcake hate train. I just don’t like them, even when I use a tried and true [booze] cake recipes we all love. However, I love every single kitty and puppy picture in this post! Nanc, your family are rock stars for taking in Peace! We always had the Charlie-Brown-Christmas-Tree of dogs because my Mum is the same way you are.
Mwhaha – that purple plate is actually a (clean!) cat snack plate. It has a mouse engraved into the center. The cats get prettier plates than the humans do, around here!
Oh, Good Lord. We’re not rock stars, we’re just not the type of people who could turn away a damn dog in need. I’m pretty sure that just makes us dumbasses. But I love the idea of calling them the Charlie-Brown-Christmas-Tree of dogs. So freaking true.
You’re rock stars! You can’t make me take it back!
Hush, before my head gets as big as my ass.
Cupcakes are dangerous territory for me. I can turn down a piece of cake easily, but a cupcake? I can blow through 2 or 3 before coming to my senses. I don’t know if my brain thinks because it’s a cupcake, it’s not really “cake” and therefore it will be less likely to make my ass fat. I have the same reasoning when it comes to chocolate baking chips vs. an actual candy bar. I can turn down candy bars, but an unsupervised bag of chocolate chips in my house does not survive long.
That’s an insane amount of mixing time for so-so cupcakes. I’m finding that the less time I spend on a recipe, the better it tastes. I didn’t remember that frosting recipe though, so thanks Robyn for reposting that. I am going to bookmark it for future reference – did the cocoa powder give a good chocolate frosting? I have dark cocoa powder I’d love to try.
Peace is absolutely adorable and is probably thrilled at the prospect of being spoiled rotten for the rest of her days. After seeing how a lot of people treat animals, it’s no wonder that I prefer the company of my pets instead of roughly 90% of humanity.
The chocolate did give it a good chocolate flavor, but for a deeper chocolate frosting, I’d add more cocoa powder. Add to taste, is what I think I’m saying!
If you add some instant espresso powder it gives it a deeper chocolate flavor. According to Ina Garten anyway.
What the fuck, Robyn! You and I both took a picture of butter and vanilla bean! Get outta my head already!
I know, right?
And true confession: I thought they were too dry, also, but Fred thought they were fine, so I thought maybe I was just nuts.
Well, I told my mom that they would be a good coffee cupcake because holy shit, I almost had a choking incident!
I rate giving Peace a home and loving care…
And I love the tag line! (Apologies if this has been there for awhile and I’m just now noticing it.)
It’s only been there for about a week, actually. I think it fits this site quite well. 🙂
DAMMIT, none of us can give five stars. This is BULLSHIT. And I bet it’s tied to something SEO related (no lie, I’m not sure what SEO is, but it’s probably why we’re not bazillionaires yet).
I think the more your comment is indented, the harder it is to give 5 stars. It thinks the end of the block of stars is way over to the left and wont let you fill past it.
I fuck with y’all, because I care. You’re missing a line in the peace symbol.
However, I love the dog and want to hug him. I cannot stand people who hurt animals. Years ago when Tony and I had just moved in together, we adopted a beagle that had been hit by a car.
While, he turned out to be crazy, have issues with men(due to being abused by a male owner, as he was a hunting dog who wasn’t good at it,) and ended up having to be given to a farm, we took great care of him while we had him.
He really did go to a farm, too, we both worked full-time, he was destroying our house, and eating everything. I don’t mean just chewing. He started by eating my husband’s shoes, then a razor (electric,) destroying his crate, eating our carpet, then, he ate a wall. No, seriously, he ate the wall in our bathroom.
By the time we found a group that would take him on, he had cost us probably ten grand. And, it had come down to either I rehomed him, or Tony was done. He ended up living his life out on a farm, with just women around, and he was very happy. When he passed away, eight years after we rehomed him, he had been spoiled for all that time and was happy as long as men stayed away.
Good eye, Suzy. I didn’t even notice it and I gotta tell Rick since he’s the one that took over when I couldn’t even make a decent circle. We’re hippie posers. LOL
Trust me when I say that I NEVER, EVER wanted a beagle. I just heard too many bad things about them as housepets and while I thought they were cute, they were never my thing. But damn Peace, she won my heart because she’s been to hell and back. 🙂
Aww, Peace is beautiful! What a sweetie and a lucky girl that your son rescued her. I have a ten year old beagle mix that we rescued as a stray 8 years ago. He’s got the white in his fur on his face just like Miss Peace. My guy is the snuggliest, sweetest boy, and I’m sure your Peace will be as well.
PS – those cupcakes don’t look or sound any better than the ones you make with an ordinary boxed vanilla cake mix!
Peace is already a sweetheart. I just realized last night that I have never once doubted how she would react to my touch, whether it was when I was giving her medicine or whatever. She could have bit us if she wanted – even nice dogs can/will bite when they’re in pain. I guess she just knows that she’s “home” and “safe” now.
Not that it seems like either of you are racing to make this recipe again, but you can totally buy vanilla beans at Cost Plus (World Market?) in a little envelope for like $3 a pair. You know, just in case you ever want to make a Vanilla Something Else.
I just spent half an hour checking out the Cost Plus/ World Market web site. The closest one to me is in Nashville. It seems like my kinda place, though, I may have to make the trip!
One more reason I love you, Robyn: you can reference my favorite line from a movie on a cupcake recipe, mmmm-hmmmm.
PS – I’m not a cupcake person, either.
Heheh, I’m glad you recognized it. 😉
I had to go back and look for the movie quote, but you actually have two movie references. I caught the West Side Story one first! (What can I say…former choir geek loves her a show tune!)
Yay for Peace! What does Felina think of her?
Not really a cupcake-baker, but we have an awesome cupcake shop in town that makes killer versions with mile-high icing on the top, so I get my occasional fixes there.
meh to the cupcakes, but yeah for Peace!! 🙂
Peace be with you! Nance, you and your family rock. (Robyn knows I feel the same way about her and hers, and that is a delicious pic of Ember.) Re the pricey vanilla beans. — it seems as though the chocolate frosting would overwhelm their subtle yumminess, but what do I know? Answer: Nowt. As always, thanks for the mid-afternoon blast. Hoping Shirley and her tube tops are OK. Whoah, why am I only allowed to give this four stars? Is four the new five? My bank account certainly thinks so.
Shirley and her tube-top are fine. She wasn’t here when I made them otherwise it would be showing up. Soon, it will be time for her collection of flannel shirts. ohboy!
I ate a cupcake (well, half of one) before I frosted them, and couldn’t detect any trace of vanilla taste. The frosting was the best thing about these cupcakes! 🙂
Together we bitch about vanilla beans being so expensive, although yours were way cheaper than mine! Apparently I was buying the Gold Plated vanilla beans!
Together we decide that there is nothing more beautiful on the planet than vanilla beans mixed in butter. Fat-fatties UNITE! Hee!
I’m wondering if I’m remembering the price wrong, because that’s a pretty big price difference for two vanilla beans!
There’s nothing more beautiful on the planet than ANYTHING mixed in butter. 😀
We pay almost $12 for two vanilla beans! My husband uses them when he makes crème brulee.
Nance, I love your family for rescuing Peace! So glad she is settling in, and has happy days ahead of her!
Creme brulee sounds good about now. 😉
I just recently learned (from my girl Martha) that you can make buttermilk by combining milk and white vinegar and letting it sit.
Peace is such a cutie…thanks for rescuing her!
I’ve done the milk/vinegar thing, but always thought it just wasn’t exactly like how I wanted it to turn out, hence the trying of the buttermilk powder – now I’m not sure if it’s better or not (thanks to those damn cupcakes). I’m going to have to make biscuits or something to see how it does for real.
The look on Peace’s face says “Keep trying to make the perfect cupcake and I’ll keep taste testing for you.” Bless you for bringing her home. She’s lucky to have found you.
In my experience with a deaf and mostly blind dog, vibrations are the best form of communication. You’ll feel like an idiot stomping on the floor and slapping on the wall, but they feel it and look up right away. Then you can make all the wild airplane gestures you want.
Cupcake wrappers merely waste precious cupcake when it sticks to the liner. That is why I am forever Team Cake (although my son would say it’s a reason to be Team Pie since you eat the wrapper as well).
Team Cake FTW!
I like the occasional pie, but cake has my heart. 🙂
I’m with Kelly (we share some letters, after all). Team Pie FTW! (Again, I’m only allowed to give four stars, blast it.)
I would rather have both – not at the same time, but maybe both on the same day. Cherry pie for breakfast is the absolute finest thing in the world (which pretty much leaves cake for an after dinner delight).
FUCK IT – IT WILL NOT LET ME LEAVE ANY STARS. I HATE THIS!!!!
My son would love to live at your house… pie for breakfast and cake for dinner (okay, dessert… but he would push the boundaries).
This might be an appropriate place to mention that he was asking for dessert the other day and I mentioned that there were blueberries in the fridge. He rode his bike to the grocery store to pick up a box of cake mix so he could make the cobbler recipe that you (you all? y’all?) had here last year. Yummy and I didn’t have to bake it. Bonus!
PS— I tried really hard to give more than three stars. But when I re-clicked, it gave only two stars so I’m quitting before you end up with none.
I bet Amanda never runs low on confectioner’s sugar ;)… and can you imagine her reaction to canned frosting??
FYI, if you happen to want to make that buttercream frosting recipe, but don’t have any cream (or other milk products), Hershey’s syrup in lieu of the cream makes a lovely chocolate frosting, and Dr. McGillicuddy’s Intense Cherry licquer makes a nice cherry-flavored frosting. The best I’ve come up with for a vanilla version is to make it in the summer when the butter’s super soft, and add extra vanilla. For all I know you could just replace the cream with water, but that just seems wrong on all levels.
I have never heard of Crap! Liqueur. Do you bake with it?
It’s an acquired taste….
Amanda probably knows intuitively that you can make confectioner’s sugar from plain granulated sugar (Robyn also knows this because she read it, but who wants to pull out the blender and deal with that shit?!) 🙂
It NEVER occurred to me to use Hershey’s syrup, and I actually HAVE a damn can of it in the fridge! This makes me want to figure out a reason to need chocolate buttercream, so I can give it a try. 🙂
A half-recipe is good on Wacky Cake. But don’t take my word for it – I think you need to confirm that with an independent test 😉
Reason not the need, Robyn. (Or perhaps: needs must when the devil drives.)
5 stars for Peace! You and your family do rock, Nance! Our 12+ year old, deaf rescue, Molly,(adopted in February) sends good vibes to Peace, too. So many seniors need love and cupcakes! Bless you!
How the hell did you get five stars? Good vibes right back to Molly ( now go bake her some cupcakes, dammit). 😉
Aww, I might just love Peace! It is awesome that rescued her. My husband was a cruelty investigator for the local SPCA years ago and he rescued a puppy mill mother (a beagle who was about the same age as Peace). She was an awesome dog. We are now on our third rescue beagle (who is a nut). Much love and happiness to Peace!
I admit I kind of forgot that the point is a recipe. The real point of this entry is PEACE enjoying the hell out of that cupcake!!! LOVE!!!!
What I’m hearing is that Peace is our new mascot, Nance. 🙂 Put a dinosaur mask on her!
I can’t believe nobody has said “Give Peace a Chance” yet.
We were all thinkin’ it, though! 🙂
Peace FLINGS her FOOD. She is not allowed to mascot for a food blog when she flings her food. And also, she eats with her mouth open. It’s gross. And bad for business.
So unlike you, Peace enjoys “See-Food”?
Peace only enjoys half “see-food” since she’s blind in one eye. That love comes from Rick’s side of the family. Heh.
The solution to the frosting-up-the-nose problem is to eat the cupcake like a sandwich. Tear off the bottom, plop it on top, and you’re all set! This is how we ate them at the bakery I worked at in my teens. Not that it would apparently help THESE cupcakes…
You know, now that you mention it, I think I saw someone do that in a movie or TV show. Next time I’m eating a cupcake, that’s what I’m going to do! 🙂
Liz Lemon did that on 30 Rock while everyone chanted “Cupcake Sandwich!” Was that it? I’m in total agreement with you about the physical task of eating cupcakes, they are an overrated nuisance.
No, the one I’m thinking of was either a girl and a boy or two girls coming out of a bakery (?), and one girl took the cupcake and did it for the boy or the other girl, and was very pleased with herself.
But I do remember the one on 30 Rock, now that you mention it!
I bought the first season of 30 Rock and couldn’t get into it. Now I want to give it another chance because I read Bossypants. I don’t know why I couldn’t get into it. Maybe I’m a humorless bitch.
Milk + vinegar = Buttermilk….you probably knew that.
Somebody already beat you to it in the earlier comments and yeah, I already knew that. Now give me the equation for making a cheesecake appear on my desk right this second. PLEASE! It’s an emergency! 😉
OMG, OMG, OMG! I had to skip through the rest of the recipe and everyone’s comments to say – I Love You, Nance! That is the saddest looking beagle (my favorite dog) and you have saved it!!! Good things will come your way for doing such a good deed! Now, I gotta get back to the rest of the recipe.
You weirdo. Heh.
