Drake Cakes

Recently, I had a friend qualify for the the Drake Relays. It’s kind of a big deal, she’s worked really hard to get to where she is and really deserves the opportunity to run this weekend. And she gets to! Last week we had some bad weather, and there was a possibility they wouldn’t qualify because they didn’t have a fast enough time and their next meets were likely to get rained out. However, they didn’t, and they ran and had a fast enough time to qualify. YAY!!IMG_7230

So I made cupcakes for her. Here’s how it goes.

You get your flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt and put it in your mixing bowl. Mix that stuff all together, and then get your stick of butter, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla and mix that stuff in. Then mix it until it gets all silky and stuff, then divide it into baking cups and bake it for around 20 minutes.

This batter is thick, it tastes great, and it makes some dense cupcakes. It does have butter and that’s always nice, but still, I really like the recipe. I think that it’s a keeper. Also, they are so easy to make, it takes less than an hour total, with frosting (if you don’t count cooling time, sorry).IMG_7224

I found the recipe here.

Here’s how they look. The frosting was the one on that page, but with blue food coloring for Drake. Yahoo!
