Basic Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

This is a basic vanilla cupcake recipe but with an unusual twist as it sports a heavy amount of vanilla. If you are not fond of vanilla you can reduce the amount or not use any at all. In replacement of vanilla you can another extract. If you do use the vanilla make sure to use a pure quality vanilla that does not contain high fructose corn syrup as that’s a sign it is of low quality. As far as serving size, I just eyeball it, I think I got 10 or so from this recipe.


1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup butter softened

1/2 white sugar

2 eggs

1/2 milk

2 TBSP Vanilla Extract

1tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

Soften the butter and add sugar to it and then the eggs. Mix well and then add milk and vanilla. Add in baking powder and salt and then slowly sift in the flour using a sifter. Bake on 350 until a toothpick comes out clean.
