Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place 12 muffin cup liners in muffin tin.

  • Place flours in a medium bowl. Sift sugar, baking soda, and salt into bowl.

  • Whisk butter and oil. Add buttermilk and next 3 ingredients (through vanilla), whisking until well-combined. Add dry ingredients to wet.

  • Divide batter evenly among liners, and bake in middle of oven about 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  • Mix food coloring into frosting. Transfer half to a separate bowl, and mix with raspberry jam. Pipe about 1 tablespoon of jam frosting into tops of cupcakes with a round-tipped pastry bag.

  • Pipe remaining frosting onto cakes with a star-tipped pastry bag. Garnish with a raspberry.

  • Skinny it up! Frosting (just make half!) but no filling makes these about 100 calories and 4g fat lighter.
