Baking Classics: Buttermilk Cupcakes

The Technique

Buttermilk Cupcakes

Buttermilk Cupcakes are the perfect foundation to use for a variety of celebrations ranging from birthdays & showers to weddings & more. They may be finished with chocolate or vanilla frosting & even dressed up further to showcase a new take on a southern classic,  banana pudding. This particular formula is well balanced yielding little cakes that rise evenly & slightly over the pan surface. When portioning the batter, use a spring release ice cream disher for ease & fill cups approximately 3/4 full for the best results. Learn how to craft a classic in your very own kitchen that may be prepared all throughout the year.

How To Make Buttermilk Cupcakes

 It is good practices to have a variety of paper cupcake liners in different colors. Dark brown ones may be used when preparing chocolate batters while white are perfect for lighter shades. Coordinating hues will lend a more polished appearance once the cupcakes have been baked.
