1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup sour cream

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1 cup powdered sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow crème

1 drop red food color, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350ºF. Place mini paper baking cups into mini-muffin pans; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, baking powder and salt in bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine granulated sugar and 1/2 cup butter in another bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add milk, sour cream and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla; beat until smooth. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed just until incorporated.

  4. STEP 4

    Spoon 1 level tablespoon batter into each mini paper baking cup. Bake 14-16 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let sit in pan a few minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 3/4 cup butter and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add marshmallow crème and food color, if desired; continue beating until well mixed. Frost cupcakes.

Tip #1

For regular-size cupcakes, prepare batter as directed. Divide batter evenly among 24 regular-size muffin pan cups lined with paper baking cups. Bake 23-26 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Makes 24 cupcakes.

Tip #2

If you are using darker colored baking pans, these cupcake bites may take slightly less time to bake. Start checking after 11 minutes of bake time.

Tip #3

These mini cupcakes can also be frosted with our Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting. You will only need half a batch to frost all 40 of these cupcakes.
