Marble Michael Jackson Cupcakes
Recipe by Adam
Makes 12 cupcakes
2 cups cake flour
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
¼ tsp salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
2 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven an oven to 350*. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix with a whisk until combined.
In a larger bowl, cream sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add beaten eggs, milk, and vanilla, and mix until they come together. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and fold until they are well incorporated.
Pour out half the cupcake batter into a small bowl – add desired cocoa, up to ¼ cup, and mix until it is nice and chocolaty. It will be pretty stiff, so you might want to loosen it up with a Tbsp of milk or two.
With heaping tablespoons, add dallops of the vanilla and chocolate mixture randomly into the prepared pan, so the cupcakes are marbled and confused.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops spring back when touched.
There's been alot of 80's music played here at clinic recently. Those of you who are around my age probably remember Michael Jackson back when he could dance, was cool, and made good music. I remember watching an In Living Color parody where he asked himself whether he was 'Black or White', and it was hilarious. Thsese cupcakes don't dance or sing or anything, but I laugh every time I eat one and think of that song. So make some cupcakes, throw on some 80's, and dance like a fly girl, kids.
