  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper cupcake wrapper or baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Add a kiss of flavor to these cupcakes by tossing in a teaspoon of orange, almond or butter-flavor extract in place of the vanilla bean seeds.

To cut back on the calories per serving even more, bake the batter in mini muffin cups for 10 to 12 minutes. Top with frosting for teeny one-bite wonders that taste one-bite wonderful!
