I ventured back into the realm of the kitchen today, thinking it couldn't be too difficult to operate the kitchenaid one-handed~I had surgery a week ago and am sporting a huge honkin' cast on my left hand and forearm~and managed pretty well except for taking the pan out of the oven. I used a 12-cup pan thinking it would be easiest, but it was not easy to get the hot pan out of the oven, with one hand, trying not to damage the cupcake goodness!
My cupcake choice today: White chocolate sour cream cupcakes, a recipe I found on 'cakeonthebrain' blog . Scraping nearly every bit of batter out of the bowl (no easy feat with one hand!) I was able to get 12 cupcakes. They are a bit flat on top, and they stuck to the rim of the pan, so they all ended up with somewhat lifted tops as I had to loosen the edges with a knife. Then I made a white chocolate cream cheese icing, subbing baileys in for the milk. I didn't go too heavy with the icing sugar, since my preference is a softer and less sweet icing. The cupcake itself is light textured with a subtle white chocolate taste and nicely moist. The Baileys icing is very good, with barely a hint of cream cheese flavor coming thru. All in all, very yummyful, and now I'm off to do the one-handed kitchen clean-up!
