With Easter just around the corner, there is no better time to start planning what to serve after the turkey has been devoured. These delicious Peep Easter cupcakes are the perfect sweet treat for adults and children. Everyone loves a cupcake and the bunny peeps are the perfect festive accompaniment for the holiday.

Cupcake Ingredients

1/2 C. butter, softened to room temperature
1 C. sugar
2 large egg whites
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 C. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 C. milk


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the softened butter, sugar, egg whites and vanilla mixing well. Slowly fold in the flour, salt and baking powder. Lastly, add the milk continuing to stir.

Pour into greased muffin tins (or liners) and bake 20-25 minutes. Insert a toothpick around 20 minutes and if it comes out clean the cupcakes are done.
