Strawberry-pink, speckled with punchy poppy seeds, and topped with a bright, citrus-infused frosting, these cupcakes are springtime dream. Because they’re made with a touch less fat than your more traditional recipes, they’re easier to whip by hand (no need to dirty up your mixer!) and have a lighter texture and flavor that’s more delicate; somewhat like muffins. Effortlessly ready in around half an hour, you’ll have yummy cupcakes ready to enjoy; share with a friend or just treat yourself (we won’t tell!).
