Simply Scratch are especially delicious and if the rest of the "adults" at the party enjoyed them as much as I did, then they were a success. You only have to be a kid at heart to enjoy these colourful and tasty treats!
Funfetti Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
From Simply Scratch
4 whole Egg Whites
1 cup Whole Milk
2 teaspoons Real Vanilla Extract
3 cups Cake Flour, sifted
1 1/2 cups Sugar, sifted
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 1/2 sticks of Unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 cup Sprinkles, plus more for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
Combine the egg whites, vanilla whole milk. Whisk together and set aside.
Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Blend the dry ingredients with the butter and half of the milk and egg mixture. Scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl, and then slowly add the remaining mixture and stop mixing once combined. Fold in sprinkles.
Fill paper liners half way with batter. Bake in preheated oven for 17-20 minutes. Watch carefully so you don’t over bake. Cupcakes will spring back when pressed with a fingertip if they are done.
Allow the cupcakes to cool completely, then frost with the prepared cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with remaining sprinkles.
