Alternating additions of dry ingredients and milk.

Spoon into the prepared paper cases and bake for 25 to 30 mins.

Icing

Beat egg white until semi stiff, then mix with icing sugar to make a smooth thick frosting.

Put a little of the icing on each cupcake, decorate with as m&m and allow to set before serving.
