I thought it would be fun today to show you my simple "go to" cupcake recipe that I use all the time when I want to make vanilla cupcakes. They are easy to make, always turn out and delicious. In short . . . they are the perfect vanilla cupcake.
They are as easy as dumping all of the cake ingredients into a bowl and whipping them together with an electric whisk.
They bake up moist, light and fluffy every time. I flavour them with vanilla and a hint of lemon extract. Lemon enhances the vanilla flavour. Did you know that? It's true!
I've also included a recipe for a simple buttercream. I just spread it on. These aren't meant to be wors of art . . . simply a bit of something that does you good. Who doesn't like a little cake just for you?
You can decorate them or not as you wish. I had some leftover candy coated milk chocolate easter eggs, so I just crushed them and sprinkled them on top. They went down a real treat!
