Brown Sugar Vanilla Cupcakes

These vanilla cupcakes are not ordinary ones: the brown and coconut sugar adds the brownish colour. I swirled them with coconut buttercream (sure, I will add an easy recipe for the cream also ?), but you can always use a classic vanilla buttercream?.

  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
