  • This a super-easy recipe and the cupcakes are puffy, golden and perfect for topping with your favourite buttercream icing.
  • They took me a matter of minutes to make and I was able to double the recipe to make 24 for with ease. You just need to make sure that you beat the wet ingredients mixture for about 4 minutes to get that fluffy batter.
