Makes 12 cupcakes

Cupcake Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup butter (at room temperature)

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 cup good quality white chocolate, chopped and melted

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

Vanilla Glaze Ingredients:

1/4 cup milk

1 tsp clear vanilla extract

2 cups powdered sugar

Optional Ingredients:

Colorful sprinkles for garnish


Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease muffin tin or line with muffin liners and set aside.

To prepare cupcakes, in a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter on medium-high speed, until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until well combined and fluffy. Reduce the mixer speed to medium and slowly add eggs, one at a time, until just blended.

Add the melted chocolate and vanilla, mixing well.

With the mixer on low, slowly add half the flour mixture, mix until just blended. Add the buttermilk, mix until just blended. Slowly add remaining flour mixture, scraping down sides of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary, until just blended.

Divide the batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cupcakes cool completely before glazing.

Glaze: To prepare the glaze, warm the milk and vanilla in a medium saucepan set over low heat. Add the powdered sugar and whisk slowly until slightly thickened.

Dip cupcakes, upside down, in the glaze and set on a rack placed over a baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles immediately.

Repeat with remaining cupcakes, Let set for 5 minutes before serving.
