This week I made poundcake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. They turned out beautiful and the frosting was really good.
Poundcake bakes more like a muffin than a cupcake so they are a little harder to frost.
Here is a very easy and basic cream cheese frosting recipe:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups powered sugar
Mix the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla together until blended. Add powered sugar slowly until smooth.
Cream cheese frosting is great on cupcake flavors like spice or chocolate. It is also really good on pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
