    The Perfect Homemade Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

  • Elise Fitzpatrick

    Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe by Glorious Treats Yields- 15-16 cupcakes 1 1/4 cups cake flour 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 3/4 cup sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1/2 cup oil (vegetable, canola or extra light olive oil) 1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 cup milk plus 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar or lemon juice- add acid to the milk then set aside for 5 minutes before using) Directions- * Preheat oven to 350*F. * In a medium bowl, add cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir together with whisk, and set aside. * In the bowl of an electric mixer, add eggs and beat 10-20 seconds. Add sugar and continue to beat on medium speed about 30 seconds. Add vanilla and oil, beat. * Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add about half of the flour mixture. Add half of the milk, then the rest of the flour and the rest of the milk. Beat until just combined. Scrap down the side of the bowl. * The batter will be thin. Pour batter into a muffin pan prepared with paper liners. Fill liners about 2/3 full. * Bake cupcakes in pre-heated oven for 12-14 minutes. * Cool in pan 1-2 minutes, then remove cupcakes from pan (carefully) and finish cooling on a wire rack. * Frost as desired when fully cool. I love to use my favorite Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting recipe. * Feel free to use this recipe for a cake as well. The recipe above will work for a 6" cake. Double the recipe for an 8" or 9" cake. * A note about Cake Flour- Cake Flour has a lower protein content than traditional all-purpose flour, which results in a more tender, delicate crumb in the finished product. If you can not find or access cake flour, feel free to substitute as necessary, but your results will vary from the original recipe. Prop notes- Brown cupcake liners from Simply Caked. The pretty purple cupcake liners are from Confectionery House. The pearlized sprinkles are from Sweet Baking Supply. Cupcake stands available at Farmhouse Wares.

Raspberry Vanilla Cupcakes (by @Glorious Treats)

Perfect Vanilla Cake, Okay, so here's the consensus: This is definitely the best vanilla scratch recipe I've ever made. It tastes great. It's light and fluffy rather than heavy and grainy as most recipes are. It isn't the exact texture of a mix as she claims, but it is still very good. I'll definitely be using it from here on out! Woo hoo!!

Vanilla Bean Cupcakes - "absolutely the best cupcakes I've ever made. I doubled the amount of vanilla, and they were sooooo good."

Whipped vanilla frosting. "Tastes like creamy ice cream–there is no sugary residue or chalky texture...It also has a glide factor that makes it wonderful when applying to cakes." Definitely adding this to my list of must-try frostings! YES!!! I make this frosting and its amazing!!! :D
