  • 1/8 tsp allspice (optional)
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place dry ingredients (first 6 ingredients) in order into a large bowl.
  3. Mix together and flatten out a little with your spoon.
  4. Dig 3 holes (2 smaller holes and one larger hole).

My 10-year-old daughter has made these cupcakes twice all by herself – she loves baking and this recipe is easy enough for her.

I love that she is gaining independence.  Kid-friendly recipes like this are the best – and this one tastes so good it is sure to impress!
