4 Delicious One-Bowl, Two-Serving Cupcake Recipes

When you crave cupcakes, normally you only ever imagine eating one, but somehow they always seem to come by the dozen. Why is that? Why can’t you just make two cupcakes – one to eat and one to share? Or maybe just the two, for you.

Well, you can.

Plus, by only making enough for two, you can forget having to haul out all the heavy kitchen equipment. Instead, all you need is a whisk and a little elbow grease; and who isn’t willing to do a little arm workout to make themselves some cupcakes?

Since it’s almost impossible to decide which flavor cupcake is the best, below is a list of four delightful recipes that make only two cupcakes. With a perfect portion every time you whip up a batch, who’s to say that you have to stop with just one recipe?
