Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

Here is another one of the vanilla cupcake recipes that I LOVE to use. It's quite simple!
All you need are a few easy ingredients and you are ready to go! I stumbled upon this while searching for a great vanilla cupcake recipe~ I am pretty sure this is from magnolia...

Here's what ya need:
4 large eggs (room temp)
2 cups of granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups of self rising cake flour
1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour ( I love king arthur brand!)
2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 cup of millk
I found that these rise up and get a great dome on top. They are a little denser than a box mix, as most "real"  homemade cakes are---but they taste delicious!!

Here's how to make them:
Cream butter and sugar..but not too much. Add the eggs, scraping down the sides after each egg.
Mix the flours together (sift if you would like, sometimes I just use a whisk)
Add the flour and milk alternating in 3 batches.

Fill your cupcake liners 2/3 of the way..then bake for 20 -25 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick comes out clean. If you touch the top of the cupcake it should spring back... let them cool!
