Birthday Recipes

So, I thought I would share our favorite birthday cake recipe, the ones that made these awesome cupcakes.
It's semi-secret family recipe. By that I mean everyone loves it but I don't know anyone outside of our family that makes

The finished cupcake, with yellow icing

Chocolate cake:
1 3/4 c. flour
2 c. Sugar
3/4 c. cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 cup veg oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 c. boiling water

Combine dry ingredients. Mix liquid ingredients except hot water and gradually add dry ingredients. Mix well then add boiling water. Bake 30-35 minutes in greased and floured pans

Note mixture will be thinner than normal cake batter.

5 Tablespoons flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. milk
1/2 c. crisco
1/2 c. butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cook flour and milk until thick , on low heat stirring constantly. Cool completely in refridge. Mix sugar, butter, crisco and vanilla then add the flour/milk mixture. Beat on high heat until miture thickens.

And because I couldn't resist some fun photos from our birthday dinner out :)
