Vanilla Bean Cupcakes

Made this recipe with 3 modifications: 1) used salted butter since I also made the salted caramel frosting and did not have enough unsalted butter on hand for both recipes; 2) did not use the Kosher salt since I used salted butter; 3) used 2% milk. They came out great and I did not have an issue with the salt flavor. They did come out on the small size. I think the recipe yields more like 16-18 decent sized cupcakes.

Salted Caramel Frosting

Tried this recipe with the vanilla cupcakes. I would agree that the frosting had a fatty mouthfeel due to the amount of butter used. And while I liked the flavor, I thought the caramel could be stronger. Next time, I will double the amount of caramel and perhaps go with one stick of butter. And perhaps pair with apple or pumpkin cupcakes. The vanilla cupcakes were GREAT. But I think the frosting and cupcakes would be better paired with other flavors. All in all, would try again with some modifications.
