Are Funfetti Cupcakes Difficult to Prepare?

Do I Need a Stand Mixer To Make Funfetti Cupcakes?

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ cups of granulated sugar depending on your sweet tooth
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons of white or apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • cup of rainbow sprinkles plus more for topping
  • 1 batch of vanilla frosting

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Line two cupcake tins with silicone or paper baking cups.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer (or in a large bowl using a handheld electric mixer or wooden spoon), mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, vinegar, oil, and water until smooth. When completely mixed, stir in the sprinkles.
  • Pour the batter into each baking cup until it’s three-quarters full.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Test a cupcake by sticking a toothpick in the middle. If the toothpick comes out dry, the cupcakes are done.
  • Allow to cool completely before frosting. Sprinkle on some sprinkles for garnish, if using.
