  3. In another bowl, we will whisk the eggs and add the rest of the liquid ingredients to it, blending it well.
  4. Take this liquid mixture and add it to the dry mixture we made in step 2. Keep whisking till all the ingredients are blended well. Scoop 2 tbsp of this mixture and place it inside the cupcake liner.
