-Directions for cupcakes:

Dump all of your ingredients into a bowl. One of the reasons why I love this recipe is because you don’t have to mix anything specifically.

-After everything is mixed, your batter should be of a nice consistency.

-Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners and pour your batter in. I like to fill my cupcakes more than half full, almost to the top because I find it easier to frost when they are poped up above the liners.

-Bake in a 350 degree oven for around 20 minutes. I recommend watching your cupcakes though because oven times really vary. Take them out when they are fully cooked and a nice light golden brown.

-Take your cupcakes out and let them cool until they are completely cool.

-Once your frosting is done and your cupcakes are completely cooled it’s time to frost!

You can either put your frosting in a ziplock bag and frost in circles, or you can simply frost with a knife like I did.

I halved the recipe thinking I didn’t want 4 dozen cupcakes sitting around. But I only got 1 dozen then. Very tasty!
