Vanilla Cupcakes💛

If you like all things vanilla, you need to try this then! They turn out simple, moist and addictive! I made these color themed for my cousin’s bridal shower. 💟💍 We wrapped white lace cupcake liners around them and decorated them onto a two tiered cupcake stand. The candle stand right next to it complemented it perfectly 😍

Vanilla Cupcakes:


  • 113 grams (1 stick) of Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of salt (around 1/8 tsp)
  • 1 1/3 cups of All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup whole milk


1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius). Line your cupcake tray with liners and set aside

2) In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside

3) In another bowl, using an electric or hand mixer, beat the butter until soft and creamy. Add in the sugar. Whisk together until the sugar is nicely dissolved with butter and is light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes)

5) Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Scrape down from the sides of the bowl as you go along

6) Add in the Vanilla extract

7) Put the mixer on a slow speed and add in the flour mixture (in three additions) and milk (in two additions). Start and end with the flour. Do not overmix

8) Fill your cupcake liners with the batter (fill them ¾ of the way up as you need to leave some space for them to rise). Bake in your preheated oven for around 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cupcakes comes out clean. Let them cool completely before frosting
