Servings: 12 cupcakes
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup whole milk, room temperature
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a cupcake tin with paper liners and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in the vanilla extract.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in three parts, alternating with the milk, and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
Scoop the batter into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
And that's it! These vanilla cupcakes are so easy to make, and they taste amazing. You can top them with your favorite frosting, sprinkles, or other decorations to make them even more special.
