Honey Pecan Cupcakes
Contributed by: News Canada
(NC) - Everybody loves cupcakes. Perfect for a party or to satisfy that sweet tooth, the kids will love to decorate their own. Try substituting plain margarine or butter with Derlea's new honey pecan spread - it's trans-fat free and adds authentic flavour.
And, here's some great news you can feel good about: Derlea will donate 50 cents for every new spread purchased in Canada to Spread the Net (www.spreadthenet.org),
a Canadian organization that provides bed nets to families in Africa to prevent malaria. So, you can spread some flavour and save lives, too.

- 1 1/4 cups all purpose white flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line muffin plan with paper cupcake cups. Sift or mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
