Old Fashioned Cupcakes

I have been wanting to make this
old fashioned cupcake recipe for a long time.
I was sick today, so I decided to make
them to pass the time this evening.

A friend had gave me a magazine
called "Where Woman Cook."
It features women all over the world
that cook in practical kitchens.
It's a wonderful magazine I would
recommend to anyone.

These cupcakes are delicious.
They are different than most cupcakes,
they are more like a shortcake.
I added fresh peaches to the batter
and icing, and they taste just like summer.

A moist cupcake topped with creamy, peach icing.

 I love buying printed cupcake papers.

Cool frosting and ice generously.

I ate one... then had to eat another one for this photo.

Place on a plate and off to a picnic you go.

Slowly add milk and vanilla to batter and
