How to Make It


Step 1-Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and mix.

In a large bowl, hand, or stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one.

Beat in 1/4 cup honey and vanilla extract.

With mixer on low speed, beat in dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with milk. Mix in each addition until just combined.

Line a cupcake tin with 12 liners and fill about 3/4 of the way full. 

Bake for 17-20 minutes, until the edges are golden and the tester comes out clean.

Let cupcakes cool before frosting.

Step 2-Buttercream

Beat the butter until light and fluffy.

Slowly add in the powdered sugar one cup at a time.

Mix in vanilla and honey.

Mix in one Tbsp of Summerhill Milk until you reach your desired consistency.

Step 3

Frost your cupcakes and enjoy!
