Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These little green gems are perfect for St. Patrick's Day! The cupcakes are light and fluffy with a great flavor. Cream cheese frosting is the perfect topping for these treats. Cute and yummy!!
2Whisk eggs in a med bowl and then add remaining wet ingredients (EXCEPT FOOD COLORING), set aside.
3In your stand mixer put all dry ingredients and mix well.
4Add food coloring into the wet ingredients, whisk well then slowly add to dry ingredients beating on med for 1 - 2 minutes (do not overbeat your cupcakes will get dense and not be so fluffy).
5Fill cups 2/3 full and bake for 16 minutes or until toothpick comes out dry (the toothpick might pull out a little green but you are looking for done not a clean toothpick).
6TO PREPARE FROSTING:
Cream butter and cream cheese together, add vanilla then slowly add powdered sugar beat well and use milk if needed to get the right texture for you. You can also add a few drops of green food coloring to add a green tint like I did on mine. Decorate and Enjoy!
