Orange Cupcake Recipe

These cupcakes are so fluffy and delicious!  I never have just one.  My kids really love the orange icing that goes with them.  A fluffy marshmallow topping would be great on these orange cupcakes too.

Ingredients

1  3/4 cup cake flour (see tip)
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 large eggs, separated and whites beaten until stiff
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup orange juice
1 stick of butter, softened

Orange Cupcake Recipe Directions

Combine butter, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla in a mixing bowl.  Cream these ingredients together thoroughly. 

Mix flour, salt, and baking powder together in a separate mixing bowl.  Add dry ingredients to creamed ingredients 1/3 at a time  alternating with adding portions of the orange juice to the creamed mixture. 

Fold in beaten egg whites.  Spoon batter into cupcake liners until 1/2 full. 

Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool cupcakes completely before frosting with Orange Icing.
