Easy Maple Cupcakes

  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 5 T. margarine -- softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. imitation maple flavoring
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. skim milk
  • 1/4 c. maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Beat the sugar, margarine, vanilla extract and maple flavoring until well blended. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Lightly spoon the flour into a measuring cup; level. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Combine the skim milk and maple syrup. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with the milk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture; mix after each addition.

Spoon the batter into 12 muffin cups lined with paper liners. Bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes in the pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from the pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with the Easy Maple Glaze.
