Vanilla Cupcakes

These easy vanilla cupcakes are so simple to make. Decorate with a swirl of delicious buttercream frosting.
A cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person, which may be baked in a small thin paper or aluminium cup. As with larger cakes, icing and other cake decorations, such as candy, may be applied. 

Prep Time           Cook Time          Ready in              Serves                 
10 min                  20 min                  30 min                 12 cupcakes        


  • Granulated Sugar-1 Cup
  • Un-Salted Butter, softened-1 Stick
  • Eggs-2
  • Vanilla Extract-2 tsp
  • Baking Powder-2 tsp
  • Salt-1/8 tsp
  • All Purpose Flour-1 1/3 Cups
  • Whole Milk-1/3 Cup

For the Frosting

  • Unsalted Butter, softened-1 Stick 
  • Vanilla Extract-½ tsp
  • Powdered Sugar
  • food color –pink and green

Preheat your oven to 180. Line your cupcake tin with liners and set aside.

 In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the sugar and butter.

Add the eggs and vanilla and cream together until you get a smooth mixture.

Add the dry ingredients and with the speed on low mix together and slowly add the milk and just mix everything to combine. DO NOT OVER-MIX! Make sure you give everything a good stir with a spatula from the bottom to incorporate any bit that wasn’t mixed.

Scoop the batter into your lined cupcake tin, make sure it’s only filled ¾ of the way up because they will rise. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool for about 45 minutes before frosting.

For the frosting

To make the frosting combine together all the frosting ingredients except the food colors and mix together to combine.

Step -7
Divide the frosting into two bowls and add food colors (pink and green) into each bowl.
Fill the frosting in a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes.
