Oh, my! It's been nearly 3 years since I posted on this blog! I hope to remedy that and post here more often this year!
Today, I was determined to bake a cake. But, with both of my ovens (built-in gas oven and countertop portable oven) not working, my choices were the tiny toaster oven and my mom's bulky NuWave oven. So, I decided to look up vintage ways of baking. I figured using a Dutch oven (large cast iron pot with a lid) might work ... but, I couldn't fit any of my racks in my large one! Finally, I decided to try my big water-bath canning pot! Perfect!
I used this cake mix that I had bought last year and had forgotten in the fridge crisper drawer! I made the mix according to the directions.
I also made a cinnamon/cream cheese frosting. Just mix all ingredients together, until smooth.
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 T. vanilla
1/6 cup olive oil
1/6 cup melted butter
4 oz. cream cheese
1 t. cinnamon/sugar mixture
It turned out perfectly! It was just enough for all the cupcakes.
