I talked a little bit before about liking to make snacks for my kiddos to enjoy.
When looking through the Rumford Complete Cookbook this month, I had snacks in mind for a recipe to try!
These little cake muffins are delicious sweet treat! They are soft, moist and fluffy but yet pleasantly dense. Packed with a sweet flavor they are kid approved....my son loved these!
The Sugar Cakes recipe is on page 163 of the Rumford Complete Cookbook. Below is a photo of the recipe.
Here is my version of the recipe with some updates.
Sugar Cakes: A Rumford Complete Cookbook Recipe
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 egg whites
Mix together the butter and the flour in a medium mixing bowl until crumbly. Add the sugar and mix well. Beat the egg whites until slightly frothy and add them to the dry mixture. Mix together well with a hand mixer. Pour mixture into a well greased mini muffin pan for small cakes. Sprinkle a small amount of sugar onto the top of each cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
The mixture was too runny with this recipe from the cookbook to roll out at all on a cutting board and cut into small cakes. I decided to bake them in the mini muffin pan and they turned out great! Mini cakes!
The recipe makes 18 mini sugar cakes.
A moist, sweet in flavor little mini cake. Grab a handful for a little snack!
