I very much like cupcakes. And, while it really isn't that much of a hassle to make a dozen cupcakes, it is generally safer to have an occasion for which a dozen cupcakes can be brought to. Otherwise they are too tempting to not eat in an unnecessarily short amount of time.
Normally I am skeptical of recipes on pinterest because, thanks in part to the cautionary tales on Pinstrosity, the internet is sometimes just too good to be true.
But tonight I decided to brave it, and I followed the pin to the One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes For Two.
A recipe that makes just two cupcakes. Two. Cupcakes. oh. dear.
So, I made them. Like I have anything better to do on a Friday night?
Actually, I made three cupcakes, since the batter looked like it might be a bit too much for just two. And, while they were baking I threw together some maple frosting (thanks for the inspiration, Fannie Farmer) because who wants a cupcake with no frosting?

To be able to make just a few cupcakes at a time? I'll never be faced with those unresolvable cupcake cravings again. And if I can just find my giant muffin tins, I could pull off baking just one cupcake at a time. . .
Oh, and earlier in the week I knit a coozy for my french press. Because what french press doesn't deserve a coozy during the cold Vermont winter?
