 Ingredients List

  • ~~~~~~ Cupcake Batter ~~~~~~
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • ~~~~~~ For Frosting ~~~~~~
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup dulce de leche


Cupcake Batter :
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare your pans (12 regular sized or 40+ minis).

In small bowl, mix your flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the sugars and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla until combined. Alternate the flour mixture with the milk until you get a smooth batter. Spoon batter into the muffin pans, filling no more than 2/3 full.

Bake for 18-20 minutes (full size) or 10-12 minutes (minis), or until a tester comes out clean.

Cool completely before frosting.

For Frosting:
Cream together softened butter and powdered sugar on low using an electric mixer. Add cream, salt, and vanilla and beat on medium speed until smooth and no lumps appear. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the prepared dulce de leche and beat to incorporate.

Frost cooled cupcakes using a knife or a pastry bag. Decorate with drizzled dulce de leche.
