Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus more if needed
  • Additional sprinkles and cake decorations for decorating

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Line a 12-cup muffin pan with 1 1/4-inch paper liners. In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sprinkles and salt. In a large bowl, whisk the buttermilk, oil and eggs. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and fold until just barely blended.

Divide the batter among the liners (fill about three-quarters). Bake until puffed and golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 13 to 17 minutes. Cool in the pan.

Stir together confectioners' sugar and lemon juice. Remove muffins from pan and drizzle with icing. Top with decorations.
