Calamansi Cupcake

This fluffy cupcake recipe has the perfect mix of sweet and sour, thanks to our local lime, the calamansi. Since calamansi contains essential vitamins and the right amount of zing, we’ve baked the cupcake using a healthier cooking oil, the Golden Fiesta Canola Oil. You can munch on this guilt-free treat as much as you want. No frosting needed.
