"Pure" cupcake from Sweet Revenge

Only 4 more days!!

I saw this cupcake a while back on Martha, and just died because the owner of Sweet Revenge (in NYC) is as addicted to Blue Cattle Truck Trading Co.'s Mexican Vanilla as I am -- OK so she buys it by the 100 gallons *she wins*! Anyway-- this is a great company based out of Utah. Back at market years a go she was telling us the story behind the name. She and her gal pal used to HAVE to drive the blue cattle truck to high school. lol!!! I thought that was a great story! This cupcake has a perfect texture and taste (all that Mexican Vanilla), it makes a pretty cupcake with a perfect dome top.

"Pure" cupcakes
by: Mario Scott


Makes 24 cupcakes

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
5 large eggs
3 cups self-rising cake flour
1 cup buttermilk
3 Tablespoons Mexican Vanilla (For REAL 3 Tablespoons)


Preheat oven to 325. Cut out 24 (5 1/2 by 5 1/2) squares of unbleached parchment paper. (way cute idea to make it different, or just use cupcake liners -- if your feeling uncreative) Fit each square of parchment into a standard muffin cup so edges stick out from the muffin cup; set aside.

In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter until softened. With the mixer on medium, add eggs and sugar; bear until well combine. With mixer on low speed, add flour in three parts, alternating with buttermilk and beginning and ending with flour. Stir in vanilla.

Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full with batter. Transfer muffin tins to oven and bake until cake tester comes out clean, 20 -25 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and let cupcakes cool completely in muffin cups.
