Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavor
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 cups (1 lb) powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavor
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
  • Maple leaf candies, if desired

    In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Beat in 1 teaspoon maple flavor and the eggs. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, and 3/4 cup milk, about half at a time, beating just until blended.

    Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each with about 3 tablespoons batter or until about two-thirds full.

    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
