Easter is almost here and my favorite Easter cupcakes are simple white cupcakes with fluffy white icing (topped with coconut).
Easy White Cupcakes
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder. Add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Fill liners 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-18 minutes - checking frequently after 12 minutes. Cool completely.
** My favorite fluffy white icing is the Betty Crocker one in the can....but don't tell anybody.
