Simple White Cupcakes

This weekend was the perfect weekend to stay in and bake.  It was chilly, rainy, and just perfect!  I made some healthy peanut butter cookies, which I will post soon, but the yummiest of all, were the cupcakes.  100%  homemade.

Simple White Cupcakes 1 cup sugar (I use coconut sugar) 1/2 cup Earth Balance (vegan spread, from TJ’s) 2 large egg whites 2 tsp vanilla extract 11/2 cup flour ( I use buckwheat or corn) 11/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 cup nonfat milk Preheat oven to 350.  Place cupcake liners in pan. Set aside. Cream together the sugar and the margarine, beat in the egg whites one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Combine flour and baking powder and mix well.  Stir in milk until batter is smooth.  Pour into liners. Bake 20-25 minutes
Homemade frosting In a bowl add some powdered sugar, a little nonfat milk and a little butter.  Mix together.  I eyed everything for this, but just get the consistency to look like frosting.  You may have to keep adding a little here or a little there.  Then I sprinkled with coconut. You can also add food coloring or anything else for your toppings.
Happy Baking!
