My favorite vanilla cupcakes
Everyone says their vanilla cupcake recipe is the best.
Well, they haven’t tried mine yet! 😉
These cupcakes are the BEST… firm but still amazingly moist with intense vanilla flavor.
This recipe is totally made from SCRATCH and I am certain it will become your “go-to” recipe, once you give it a shot! 😀
Now, this cupcake batter takes a bit LONGER to prepare than usual.
But trust me, once you bite into these cupcakes… you will know all that work was totally WORTH it! 😀
So, what makes them so SPECIAL?!
For starters, I use CAKE FLOUR, which gives these cupcakes a great texture … not too soft that it’s falling apart BUT not too firm that it tastes like a darn muffin!
I also like to SIFT the flour, which gets rid of any lumps and helps make the cupcakes fluffy.
Another important thing I do is separate the eggs and whip the egg whites until peaks form and then add them into the mixture.
I think that’s the KEY to making these cupcakes fluffy 😀
Lastly, whatever you do… please DON’T over-mix this batter!
To make my favorite vanilla cupcakes, you will need the following ingredients:
- 2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
- 1 3/4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup salted butter
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 eggs (separated)
- 2 1/4 tsp baking powder
