Rainbow Cupcakes

Rainbow Cupcakes

2 1/4 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick (110 g) melted butter
1 1/4 cup milk
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
food coloring

1.  Mix all the dry ingredients together.
2.  Mix in the melted butter until you have a wet sand consistency throughout.
3.  Mix in milk, oil, vanilla, and eggs until everything is smooth.
4.  Divide into 4 different bowls and color with food coloring.  (You need to use a lot more food coloring than you think you do to get vibrant colors that last through backing.)
5.  Pour into cupcake molds, alternating with different colors to get the rainbow/marble effect.

5.  Bake at 350* F (177* C) for 15-20 minutes.
6.  Cool and remove from cupcake molds before frosting.


These cupcakes taste just like birthday cake and they are so pretty!  They can be topped with a simple powdered sugar frosting or can stand alone.
