Vanilla Cupcakes for ONE!

Sometimes, I just can’t handle more than two cupcakes.

Am I being for reeealll???  Yes, I’m being for real.

I just can’t do it.  Especially since Easter was yesterday and Easter means Easter Bunny.  Easter bunny means:

That’s not even the half of it, or the third of it… I would even venture to say that that’s not even the 1/16th of it.  Candy overload.  I act like this is a problem, though.
As much as I enjoy it, I was still thankful to find Jessica’s one bowl vanilla cupcakes for two.  I may or may not have turned them into one bowl vanilla cupcakes for one.  But, I healthified it, so that’s fine, right?  Just like it’s fine to make up words…

How was your Easter?!  Did the Easter Bunny bring you anything?  I’m pretty sure I’ll be receiving an Easter basket until I have children.


One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes for… One
Adapted from How Sweet Eats
serves 1
Ingredients
1 egg white
2 tablespoons Splenda (or sweetener of choice)
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla (yes, a full teaspoon – they are super vanilla-y!)
1/4 cup flour
1/4 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoons (almond) milk
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 2 liners.
In a bowl, add egg white and Splenda and whisk until combined. Add in vanilla and pumpkin and stir until mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt and stir until smooth. Stir in milk. Divide batter equally between the 2 cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until cake is set. Let cool completely, then frost as desired. 
Frosting:  I used a mixture of one tablespoon Mascarpone cheese, one tablespoon powdered sugar, and 2 teaspoons cocoa powder for one and the other I did the same thing, only I added 2 teaspoons of peanut butter instead of cocoa powder.

  27. Gen

    Your cupcakes are lovely! And I like your new banner ^

  28. Sheila @ Elements

    What a great idea!! I love cupcakes, but my husband isn't fond of them. So whenever I make them, I end up eating them all or taking them into work. It's nice to know how to make just one for myself whenever I want one. :)Your look really cute, and they're also quite healthy! How was my Easter? Well, my husband and I both worked a 12 hour day at work. That's the restaurant business for ya. You work pretty much every holiday which is usually quite long and busy. But that's okay. We're used to it. :)

  29. Pudding Pie Lane

    Haha, this is very good. I've made chocolate mug cake, which is like a trashier version of what you've made! Nice frosting too, I like the use of peanut butter! This is a perfect recipe to stop yourself from eating the whole batch :) Nice blog!

  30. Mary@One Perfect Bite

    What a great idea. I certainly don't need 24 cupcakes staring me in the face. This is my first visit to your blog and I've spent some time browsing through your earlier entries. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you feature here and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  31. Shannon

    genious :) i'm thinking i shouldn't be trusted around batches of baked goods more than one for awhile, so this is perfect!

  32. Jihane Jeanty

    These are awesome! I like how you added pumpkin!

  33. Weekend Cowgirl

    These look great and easy!!

  34. Lucy@The Sweet Touch

    Mmmm, yes a recipe for one or two is best for me. It's too dangerous to have more than that sitting around here! Love your new header:)

  35. Joanne

    I totally know what you mean! If I have six cupcakes around, likelihood is that I'll eat six. But if I have one..I'll eat one. So, which is better for my health, in your opinion? Plus this looks so delicious!

  36. Multiplydelicious

    Love the idea of making one or two cupcakes at a time. Especially those days when you have a sweet tooth and only want something for that day. Love that they are healthy too. Thanks for sharing!Hope you had a great Easter!

  37. Ari@ThE DiVa DiSh

    LOVE LOVE LOVE :)

  38. Andrea B.

    Yum! I saw these on Jessica's site but forgot all about them. I'm better off making one or two cupcakes because if I have a dozen, I eat 10 and my husband eats 2. It can be a problem :-)

  39. Katie

    Definitely!!

  40. Molly Jacquinot

    UM…LOVEEEEEEEEEE the new layout. And those cuppy cakes. I want! and NEED. Okay not really I ate my entire body weight in candy yesterday, buts still. They look amazing!

  42. Cait @ Beyond Bananas

    cupcakes for one are totally what I would need. I have trouble stopping at one!! haha! Wait.. Marshmallow Musketeers? I have never seen those before and I am about to run out to the store and track one down!

  43. Sable

    Oh these look gooooooooooood!!!I love 'for one' or 'for two' recipes because I hate making a whole batch of something only for half of it to go to waste. There's only two of us and we can only eat so much! haha

  44. bellini

    I do live alone and sometimes feel like something sweet. This would be perfect!

  45. kristin

    this is perfect! i often have a craving for a single cupcake & don't want to go through the hassle of making an entire batch… but now i can make just 2… perrrrrfect! :D

  46. Swimmergal500

    Can you substitute the pumpkin puree with something else, like applesauce?

  47. Molly Parr

    You have just made me a very happy cupcake eater. Now I'll never have to make a dozen to eat just one. Bless your heart.

  48. bellini

    I do live alone and sometimes feel like something sweet. This would be perfect!

  49. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite

    You just changed my life! Though I'm not sure if for the better or worse since I can envision myself making this every night :)

  50. Sable

  52. Jenny Mendez
