  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine (1 1/2 sticks), softened

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    2. Line twenty-four muffin pan cups with paper liners.

    3. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until combined. Use a mixer at low speed to insure the proper rising of the cupcakes.

    6. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    8. When cupcakes are cool, frost with your favorite icing.
