They are moist, dense, vanilla-y and yes of course BUTTERY!! I can taste the butter in every bite and it's GOOD. BUTTER REALLY DOES make it better, I promise!
Here is my new Favorite Recipe for vanilla cupcakes! IT is sooo yummy! AND Simple. Nothing fancy about the recipe beside the cake flour. (just a little more expensive than regular flour but when used in cakes and cupcakes, it makes a world of difference. QUALITY!!) I found the recipe while googling around online! However, I can't find the site I got it from!! I can't believe it! SO, as soon as I do, I promise to give credit where credit is due! (found it on martha stewart, but this is not where I originally found it!)
These are called:
"Billy's Vanilla, Vanilla Cupcakes"
Here's what ya need:
(makes 30 cupcakes) When I made these it made a little less! OH well.
1 3/4 cups of cake flower, not self rising
1 1/4 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
2 cups of sugar
1 cup (two sticks) of unsalted butter cut into cubes
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of baking powder
4 large eggs (room temp)
1 cup of whole milk
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract (I like to use madagascar bourban vanilla)
Preheat oven to 325.(Lower if you are using a dark pan) Line cupcake pan with liners; set aside.
In the bowl of your mixer (using paddle attachment) combine flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix on low speed until combines. Add butter, mixing until just coated with flour.
In a large measuring cup (or bowl_ whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. With mixer on medium speed, add wet ingredients in 3 parts, scraping down sides of bowl before each addition; beat until ingredients are incorporated but do not overbeat.
Divide batter evenly among liners, filling about 2/3 full. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 17-20 minutes.
Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Frost once they are cooled!
SO after reading this... WHO rotates the cupcake pans, halfway through? IF YOU DO, do your cupcakes still dome?
What's your favorite frosting to top a vanilla cupcake with? Or do you prefer to fill and frost??
PLEASE...share I'd love to hear! You can also go to my facebook page and share your favorite vanilla cupcake photo's!
