Vanilla cupcakes for two (recipe for only TWO cupcakes) :)

I like cupcakes.

Sometimes I want a cupcake. Stat.

….without having 11 leftover from the batch!

 I considered it my lucky day when I stumbled upon Jessica’s one bowl vanilla cupcakes for 2. that’s right. one bowl. two cupcakes. easy peasy.

These vanilla cupcakes are absolutely perfect!  Sweet, buttery, soft, fluffy and full of rich vanilla flavor. Perfect for sharing!  You can have fun with these and add any goodies into the batter like chocolate chips, funfetti sprinkles, etc.

I left mine plain inside but went to town with the sprinkles on top. 😉

Vanilla Cupcakes for Two

Perfect to share with your sweetie!

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used white whole wheat flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • frosting (I used storebought - you could also use leftovers from my homemade fluffy vanilla buttercream)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 2 liners.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the egg white and sugar until combined.
  3. Stir in the vanilla, melted butter, and milk. Add flour and baking powder and mix everything together well.
  4. Divide the batter between two cupcake liners and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely and frost/decorate as desired.

  1. Hi Sally. I am teaching myself to bake and am quickly becoming obsessed. I found your web site and just baked your yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting.  Outstanding! This recipe and your instructions on proper measuting addressed a few big problems for me and I am so excited and thankful for the things you share. Regarding filling the liners, you mention filling halfway or divide batter into 12 liners. Exactly how much batter do you typically use? 3 tablespoons? 1/4 cup? I am having a problem consistently filling each liner and get eaither too little of two much in the end. And regarding the liners, yours are always so pretty and bright and clean. Do you use one or two?  

    Thanks so much for your time and help!!

      1. Ok. Thanks so much for the reply. I came across your suggestion for grease proof liners right after I sent the post. I am just waiting for them to arrive now 🙂

  2. Found this the night before Mother’s Day…you get where I’m going? XD I added some red food coloring (one drop) and raspberry extract. I also plan to sneak in some raspberry jam, powdered sugar, or sprinkles SOMEWHERE…

    This. Is. Perfect. As the only person in my family who will routinely eat sweets, recipes like this one not only please the family (no more force-feeding!), but my diet as well. Thanks a million!

  3. Hey! I really loved the idea of 2single cupcakes. It was stupider easy to make and I put them in ramekins instead of using liners. My only concern was that it really did come out tasting a little strange with a gelatin like texture. Any thoughts on that? Thanks!! I can’t wait to try other recipes ☺

    1. Pls send me the recipe for small batch of Cream Cheese Chocolate cupcakes. I never bake for a crownd and do not understand why we do not have recipes for let say 2,3 or 4 people. We are 2. Everything on this computer has been frustrating since 1998.

  4. 2nd year that I made these for my Hubby’s birthday! It’s really the perfect recipe. this year I added sprinkles bc everything is better with sprinkles !

  5. Baked these last minute for my husband’s birthday and he loved them!! I ended up having to substitute canned coconut milk for real milk (since we didn’t have any in the fridge) and used baking soda instead of the baking powder… and miraculously everything still turned out alright! The recipe made 3 cupcakes and they were moist, but pretty dense and heavier compared to regular cupcakes. I made a homemade frosting with powdered sugar, butter and a tablespoon of coconut milk as well and it was perfect 🙂
