I’ve tweaked their recipe a tad because they used only egg whites to keep the white batter a true white.  However, it’s the yolks that give such richness and moisture to the recipe so I’ve added one back it – it will barely make a difference to the color of the batter but will greatly improve the taste. (okay – I often add two yolks!).

Another perfect and easy valentine cupcake recipe is our Hidden Strawberry Cupcake Recipe with Homemade Buttercream Frosting.

Although pink is the theme for these cupcakes – you can create whatever color middles you want.  Food coloring and candy oils are found in the baking aisle of most craft stores.  I leave the candy oil out of the recipe when I make these.
