Another Single Cupcake!

From what I can tell, my post "How To Make 1 Cupcake" has become the most popular post on Sweet Road, so I decided it's time to add a few more single serving cupcake recipes to satisfy the individual cupcake craze! Let's start off with this Creme Fraiche Cupcake!
This cupcake is a bit more dense than the original classic vanilla single serving cupcake I shared with you, but it enhances the creme fraiche-y-ness. The cupcake flavor has just enough of that creme fraiche sour twang (maybe not the best word choice, but I enjoyed it...) with a moist center and a slightly crunchy top. Because of the heavier texture of the cupcake combined with the subtle flavor of creme fraiche, I didn't want to add an icing that would detract from the cake, so I topped it with some simple whipped cream (Cabot's is by far THE BEST aside from homemade - the flavor and texture is so... real. Most whipped creams are filled with artificial ingredients and you can taste it, especially after experiencing Cabot's).
Single Serving Creme Fraiche Cupcake

1.5 tsp Earth Balance or butter
2 tbsp sugar
4 tsp creme fraiche 
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch orange zest (optional)
3.5 tsp almond milk (or regular)
3 tbsp + 1.5 tsp flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch salt

Preheat oven (or toaster oven) to 365ยบ F

-In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the butter and sugar
-Add the creme fraiche, vanilla, orange zest and 2 tsp of milk
-In another bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt
-Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, then add the remaining milk
-Place a muffin liner in a small oven safe cup or muffin tin and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
-Let cool and add whipped cream!
* I bake my single cupcakes in a 1 cup metal measuring cup and it works perfectly!
