Vanilla Cupcakes: Full Proof Recipe

Have you been looking for full proof vanilla cupcake recipe? Well then look no further- this recipe of mine is sure shot Vanilla Cupcake recipe that will give you 12 standard sized cupcakes. These cupcakes have everything that one looks in good vanilla flavoured cupcakes. Its soft, light, fluffy and has perfect sweetness and vanilla taste.

These cupcakes happened on Holi (indian festival) and even though I planned to put this post up on Easter it just couldn’t happen. I know I haven’t declared the winners of cook with green event also but trust me managing office and home is so tedious and busy that I am unable to find time. But I promise I will do it soon.

Coming to the post; These cup cakes contain eggs but I have eggless vanilla cupcakes recipe too. So here is the Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe.

2 cups all purpose flour/ maida
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup butter
½ teaspoon salt
1 and 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence

Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Line the cupcake pan with cupcake liners/case.
With a sieve sift together flour, baking powder and salt for two times. Keep aisde.
Mix butter and sugar well or until light and fluffy.
In it mix vanilla essence and one egg at a time.
Now beat in flour and milk alternatively till well incorporated. Batter is ready.
Put 2 tablespoon of batter in the each cupcake case.
Bake at 180 C for 12-15 minutes till golden brown.
Remove immediately and cool on racks.

Just use half batter if you want 6 cupcakes.
Please make sure that all ingredients are at room temperature.
