We worked on a fun video project last month with Reynolds and Epicurious Community Table. They reached out to us to create a fun treat using Reynolds Foil Baking Cups for the 4th of July holiday. We had a great time putting together this video as well as creating this recipe for Patriotic Vanilla Confetti Cupcakes.
Be sure to check out our fun little how-to video!
This recipe would be a great addition to your 4th of July celebrations. It is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face from young to old.
Patriotic Vanilla Confetti Cupcakes
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup red and blue sprinkles
favorite buttercream frosting
PREHEAT oven to 350ºF.
CREAM the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy in a large mixing bowl, about 5 minutes. ADD the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
SIFT together the dry ingredients.
ADD the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk, in three equal parts. After each addition, beat until the ingredients are incorporated. Do NOT over mix.
ADD the vanilla.
SCRAPE the batter in the bowl to make sure the ingredients are well blended.
ADD the sprinkles, and mix for 30 seconds.
LINE a muffin tin with Reynolds® Foil Baking Cups.
Carefully FILL baking cup, about 2/3 full.
BAKE until the cupcakes are golden brown, about 20 –25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean.
REMOVE from the oven and let cool completely before frosting with your favorite buttercream frosting.
TOP with remaining sprinkles.
