Vanilla Cupcakes

Happy new year everyone , thought I would start off the new year with something simple as vanilla cupcakes. I really hate those really dense heavy cakes and have been searching and trying for a nice moist fluffy vanilla cake and this recipe really is all that . It is moist , fluffy and not overly sweet and above all easy to make so here goes.....


100 gms unsalted butter room temp
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1and 3/4 tsp baking powder
1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk


Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy
Add in the vanilla essence and the eggs .
Mix the dry ingredients together and add it in the mix
Lastly add in the milk .
Bake in a preheated  180 c oven for 15- 20 min.


Beat the butter and sugar really well , then only you will get a nice fluffy cake . This recipe yeilds about 10 large cupcakes or two 8 inch sandwich cake tins . For the cupcakes bake it about 15-20 min . and for the cakes about 25 - 40 min.


  1. It's nice to see a simple, yet delicious sounding, recipe! Yours look like they baked up beautifully! The best thing about vanilla cupcakes is you can eat them as is or use almost any flavor icing to complement the vanilla.

  2. Thanx , and trust me when I say this , I have made this many times due to popular demand and it always turns out great and yes this cake can be used as a base for any sort of filling , it's just delicious :D
