We spent the majority of today raking out the flower beds. It wasn't the nicest day, but it wasn't raining. Ms. Bailey spent the time getting to know the front yard and the electric fence (luckily she only got zapped twice). She has definitely discovered how to get around the entire yard, under the deck, around the pool, through the front gardens. She reminds me of the old Family Circle cartoon that follows Billy's Path through the neighborhood in no particular pattern.
The dessert for today is for only two cupcakes. I did end up making twelve for a dinner party I was having. I have to say that they were just okay. Not necessarily my favorite for a lot of cupcakes, but if I just wanted to make two cupcakes this would be the recipe I would go to.
Vanilla Cupcakes for Two
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/4 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
Line a muffin pan with 2 liners.In a bowl, add egg white and sugar and whisk until combined. Add in vanilla and melted butter 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 for 10-12 minutes, or until cake is set. Let cool completely, then frost as desired.
