This week I stumbled on the most fantastic Cupcake site called Ming Makes Cupcakes. Cupcake 32 is also known as Graham Cupcake with Key Lime Cream Cheese Frosting.
Graham Cupcakes with Key Lime Cream Cheese Frosting
1 cup flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
Mix flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder, and salt. Beat in butter gradually. Beat in sugar and mix thoroughly. Beat in eggs, then vanilla and milk until just mixed. Pour into lined cupcake pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out almost clean.
4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 stick butter, room temperature
2 cups confectioner's sugar
2 T key lime juice
Mix together ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Frost cupcakes. Top with a lime slice and a sprinkle of crumbs.
Now I do not know what Ming's story is but he makes some amazing looking cupcakes. Instead of a lime slice I used a Trader Joe's key lime gum drop to top the cupcake. I have only tasted the raw batter...yummmmmm and the frosting.....well I can barely stay awake to write this from the intense sugar crash I am experiencing. In fact, I just found some dried icing on my chin and I have powdered sugar all over my shirt so I must look a sight.
The recipe makes a perfect dozen and loads of frosting. There is extra frosting, so what can I throw that on top of this weekend? Hmmmmm. This dozen is going to SnB with me tonight, so hopefully they turned out yummy.
