Vanilla Cupcakes

Hello everyone and welcome to the very first post of Curiosity to the Oven!

In celebration for the very first post, I decided to start with the very first recipe I made that did NOT come from a box.

Vanilla Cupcakes

I have fond memories with this recipe. This recipe was deliberately created for a summer business venture with my childhood friend (let’s call her C).

So C and I were bored one summer and decided to try our luck by selling cupcakes at a night market. It took a month to plan and our limited student bank accounts to fund. It was arguably one of the toughest but best summers I have ever had.

This recipe is for the cupcakes lovers that do not like their cupcakes as sweet. The sugar level in this recipe was significantly cut down because my friend had provided a very nicely designed fondant topping.

Vanilla Cupcakes

2 cups of flour
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter (softened)
1 cup milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla

Electric mixer
1 mixing bowl (if you do not have proper mixing bowls, use a pot so that nothing flies through your kitchen)
2 cupcake pans

At least 24 cupcake liners

1)      Preheat oven at 350° Fahrenheit.
2)      In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
3)      Using the electric mixer on low, mix in butter, milk, eggs and vanilla
4)      Beat on high until smooth (about 2 minutes)
5)      Spoon into cupcake liners
6)      Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean
7)      Remove to cool

    mmm these look delicious! I can’t wait to try out this recipe next time I’m making cupcakes. The fact that it’s less sugar is definitely a bonus too! 🙂
