Yellow Cupcakes

2 eggs, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven 350. Line or grease one 12 cupcake cupcake pan. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add baking powder. Beat briefly, then add milk and flour alternately beginning and ending with flour. Mix until thoroughly combined. Divide evenly among 12 cupcake wells. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the center cupcake comes out clean. Remove to wire rack, cool then ice.
My thoughts:

Yellow cupcakes are your basic, plain vanilla cake in cupcake form. Yummy and the perfect base for chocolate or vanilla icing. They dome nicely and look extra cute with seasonal cupcake picks!


  1. Domed nicely? Domed perfectly! Very cute – and love the liners, too.

  2. I love the bats!

  3. Those bats are awesome!

  4. They were delish! We only have a few left!!!

  6. I just made these, but they turned out super-dense, more like a pound cake…I don’t believe I did anything wrong. They still taste lovely, so I’m going to dice them and make them into a strawberry-and-cream parfait.
