Vanilla Cupcakes

I like vanilla cupcakes because they are simple to make, take the least amount of time and there is just so much you can do with them. I made these cupcakes for a friend who was dropping by to give us our Christmas Present (lovely Fondue for 2 set). These cupcakes are light yet moist and if you have the perfect Vanilla Frosting to go with it, it makes it all the more yummier. 
1 cup flour
1/2 cup + 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 170 C
  2. Mix the butter, sugar and flour and baking powder
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, milk and vanilla extract and add to the flour mixture a little at a time 
  4. Do not over mix or the cupcakes will come out tough
  5. Line a 12-hole or 24-mini-hole cupcake tray and spoon the mixture until 3/4 full 
  6. Bake for 20 mins or until skewer comes out clean
  7. Cool completely before topping with Vanilla Frosting

Simple ingredients
Mix butter & sugar and flour
Mix the egg and milk and add to the mixture of flour
Line a 12 tin cupcake tin
Bake for 20 mins until skewer comes out clean and wait for the cupcakes to cool before frosting
