  1. For the batter: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with 24 paper liners. In a medium bowl, combine the self-rising flour and the all-purpose flour. In a large bowl, cream the granulated sugar, butter, milk and vanilla extract. Add the eggs, incrementally alternating with the flour mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool before frosting with the Cool Whip frosting, and top with the Bunuelo garnish.
