yellow cup cakes recipe

I wanted a sweet treat for work. After looking at what our local market had to offer, which seemed to be high priced, with not very good quality, I decided homemade would be my best choice. (It usually is)

I was looking for a recipe that was simple and didn’t require a lot of prep time. This Simple Yellow Cupcakes Recipe looked really good so I decided to give it a try.

There is no ingredient separation in this recipe, it can all be done in one bowl starting with the dry ingredients, adding the rest of the ingredients, and then mixing it together with an electric mixer.

I used chocolate frosting in this recipe which was really good; just use your favorite frosting recipe.
