What You'll Need

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened (1 1/2 sticks)
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk or 1 cup milk mixed with 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
24 pieces candies (gumdrops, Swedish fish or gummy bears)

How to Make It

  • 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F. Place liners into 24 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.

  • 2

    Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

  • 3

    Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes or until the mixture is light and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat just until mixed.

  • 4

    Add the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, beating on low speed after each addition, just until mixed.

  • 5

    Fill each cup about one quarter full with the batter. Drop 1 candy piece into each cup. Add more batter to the cup, filling each cup about three-quarters full.

  • 6

    Bake for 20 minutes or until the cakes spring back when pressed gently.

  • 7

    Let the cupcakes cool in the pans on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the pans and let them cool completely on the wire racks.
