Spring Time Cupcakes
Treats are always a big hit in our house. I love bringing the whole family together in the kitchen to bake… or let’s be honest, to decorate baked things.
This year we celebrated our little Birdie by making Birdie’s Nest cupcakes- chocolate (Max’s favorite) with vanilla buttercream frosting, coconut and mini Cadbury eggs (LOTS of Cadbury eggs were eaten during the making of these cupcakes). PS if you don’t feel like baking, just buy some cake mix, some premade frosting, and make the fun of the project the decorating and not the baking.
Recipe loosely based on:
1/2 cup raw cacao powder (original recipe used unsweetened natural cocoa powder)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 large cage-free organic eggs
1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
1/2 cup coconut sugar (original recipe used light brown sugar)
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
