  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking flour
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • 2 sticks of butter at room temp
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cupcake pan with liners.  Mix flour baking powder and salt (I mixed mine in my food processor to make the flour a little finer).    In a separate bowl, cream sugar and butter together till fluffy.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla.  Add dry ingredients slowly and alternate with the milk.
  2. Pour batter into cupcake liners and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Decorate with your favorite icing.  Makes 24 cupcakes.

I used Wilton's Buttercream icing with these changes:

  1. 3 tablespoons of milk instead of 2
  2. 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract instead of 1
