“These Healthy Cupcakes are light, fluffy, and moist. They’re also less sweet than most conventional cupcakes, both in the cake and in the pretty pink frosting, but they are still SO delicious!”
The process for making these cupcakes is similar to any other cupcake. Here’s a look at the steps involved. Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full information.
1. Cream the butter and the sugar with a handheld mixer until light and fluffy. (photo 1)
2. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating to combine. Beat in the vanilla. (photo 2)
3. Add the dry ingredients and the milk, alternating and gently beating together in between. . (photo 3)
4. Divide the batter among paper liners and bake. (photo 4)
TIP: It’s rare that I use electric mixers in any of my recipes since I know how chaotic homes with little kids can be, but you really do need to add air to the butter and sugar to create a fluffy cupcake.
