Cupcakes

 

To this day, I do not believe I have ever met someone who does not like cupcakes. They are the classic dessert treat that really bring out the kid in all of us, and therefore make outstanding picnic desserts for just about any occasion. The picnic desserts recipes below will teach you how to make great-tasting and unique cupcakes for your outing.

Picnic Desserts Recipes: Fluffy Chocolate Cupcakes

Cupcakes are probably one of the best picnic desserts to take on a picnic. Why? Because they are easy to make, easy to carry, and easy to eat – because they’re delicious! This cupcake recipe uses a angel food mix made from scratch to give your cupcakes that extra fluffiness and wonderful texture. You will need:

– 2 cups of sugar

– 1 cup of flour

– 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar

– ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract

– 1 ½ cups of egg whites

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla

– ¼ teaspoon of salt

– 1 teaspoon of baking powder

– ¾ cup of powdered baking cocoa (I recommend Hershey’s)

– ½ teaspoon lime juice

– Vanilla frosting and sprinkles

You will want to begin by preheating your oven to 325 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, add the egg whites and salt together and beat them until it is nice and frothy. You will probably have to use 8-10 large eggs to get these egg whites. Add the cream of tartar and continue beating the mixture until it is relatively stiff. Then, add the vanilla, lime juice, and sugar, and mix. Take the flour, baking powder, and cocoa and mix them together in another bowl. Then, add to the egg white mixture by “folding” the cocoa mix in. Grab a cupcake pan and insert the liners into the cups. You will want to then bake them for 20-23 minutes, until you can stick a toothpick in them and it come out clean. For frosting, I recommend vanilla.

Picnic Desserts Recipes: Citrus Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes are pretty commonplace, but I bet not many people have had citrus cupcakes before. These cupcakes include orange and lemon for a flavor that is guaranteed to be unique. You will need:

– 1 cup of flour

– ½ teaspoon of salt

– 2 egg whites

– 2 egg yolks

– 2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder

– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

– 4 ounces of Diet Sprite

– 1 cup of sugar

– 1 stick of butter

– ½ cup of orange juice

– 2 teaspoons of corn starch

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, take a mixing bowl and put in the flour and corn starch. Mix these together, and add the salt and the baking powder to it. This is your dry mixture. In another bowl, add the softened butter, sugar, egg yolks (get these from dividing 2 large eggs; keep the whites), and vanilla. Mix these together, pour in the Diet Sprite, and mix again. Then, take the dry mixture and put in about ¼ of it at a time into the wet mix. With each 1/4th, include about 1/4th of the orange juice. Do this until the dry mix is in the wet mix along with the orange juice. Take the egg whites from the two large eggs, fold them into the batter, and put the batter into a cupcake pan with liners. It should take approximately 15 minutes for these cupcakes to cook; to tell if they are done, stick a toothpick in them. If it comes out clean, your cupcakes are good to go. Cool and then add frosting. I recommend adding orange frosting for the best effect, but you can also put lemon-flavored frosting on top (or even lime if you can find it).
