I wanted to somehow make a classic cherry pie into a cupcake form, I think I've succeeded. This is a soft vanilla cake with cherry filling, top with buttercream and graham cracker 'crust'.
Step 1: Bake the cakes!
First, bake vanilla cakes. This recipe will make 24 cupcakes.
2 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 cup sugar
4 large eggs, room temp
1 cup milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 and line 24 cupcake tins. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually mix in each egg one at a time. In another bowl, add milk and vanilla. Alternate mixing the dry ingredients and milk mixture into the butter batter in 3 parts. Once all mixed, divide into cupcake tins, filling about 3/4 up. Bake for 20-25 minutes until done.
