Today, we are making Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes!

1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1 small box sugar-free strawberry Jell-O gelatin
3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350° F (177° C).
In a large mixing bowl, add ingredients as listed, mixing well. Line muffin tins with cupcake wrappers (YES, I know mine are Christmassy — I bought them on holiday clearance, LOL) and fill muffin cups halfway. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool and then frost. It made 23 for us.

Frosting:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon extract
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup butter or shortening.
Just let them all rip together in the mixer until nice and fluffy – then frost you cupcakes. I also let Miss Sarah put a little pink sprinkles and yellow sprinkles on them so they were “pretty”
