Super Cupcakes, Super Bowl

Sunday is a day for so many delightful things. A day of church services, Sunday brunches and once a year it means Super Bowl Sunday.

I’ll start with brunch. What’s not to like about an extra meal in the day? Or is brunch supposed to take the place of breakfast and lunch?

Now for the Super Bowl, Kaitlynn and I made cupcakes. If you haven’t heard of the Fun Stuff Cupcake book then you need to check it out. This is the best cupcakes recipe.

  • Cookie dough
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup hot water
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Roll cookie dough into 1 inch balls and freeze while preparing batter
  3. Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt into bowl. Beat butter in separate bowl with mixer about 2 minutes. Add sugar; beat until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  4. Add sour cream and water to butter mixture alternating with flour mixture; beat until blended. Fill non-stick muffin pans with the batter then place a cookie dough ball into each cup.
  5. Bake 20-22 minutes.

Due to lack of caffeine and lack of sleep I was exhausted by the end of the game. I felt like death. Speaking of death this is my fist oil painting I did recently in my painting class. And yes I am looking for any excuse to add my art work into this post.
