recipe: lovely marble cupcakes

This Valentine’s Day, I have prepared three separate recipes that can be combined into one delicious meal for you and your loved one(s)! They are the deeply red and delicious Borscht Soup, healthy Soda Heart Bread, and these lovely and sweet Marble Cupcakes.

You can choose to make all three, or only two, or just one. Or none. ;-)))

Regardless, each recipe is packed full of flavour, warmth, and of course, love. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Lovely Marble Cupcakes

Makes 12

Ingredients:

(For the cupcakes)

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp milk

(For the frosting)

1 1/2 cups icing sugar
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon juice
6 tbsp milk (more or less, depending on desired consistency)
Sprinkles, optional

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 12 muffin cups with liners. In a medium bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, and egg whites until they are smooth and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Sift in the flour, then add the baking powder, stirring until completely combined. Set aside.

2. In another bowl, mix the cocoa powder and milk together. Then fold in half of the cupcake batter, stirring until it becomes a smooth chocolatey mixture. 

3. Using a teaspoon, add a heaping spoonful of vanilla batter to each muffin cup. Use another spoon for the chocolate, and repeat until all of the batter is gone and all of the cups are even. (They should be nearly half full.) Take a toothpick and swirl each cup around a couple of times. Then place in oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the icing. Once the muffins have cooled, spread icing over each one. Using a cake decorating kit will yield the prettiest results. Top with sprinkles, if so desired! Finish off your Valentine’s Day- or any- meal with these beautiful, lovely cupcakes!
