Cupcakes for Two

Al loves cake a lot, actually I really do, too! But most cakes are large with many servings that we eat, and have a lot of sugar and fat and calories in them, and – usually – NO fruit or vegetables! – so I don’t make cake very often.  Then I saw a recipe for cupcakes for two and I thought that it would be perfect.  I had to modify it a lot since it was half frosting and it used a lot of butter for both.  Poor Al, even when I make him cake, it has to be heathy!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
