Vanilla Cupcakes

Saturday, May 24, 2008

Everytime I logged into the internet, one of the must see blogs will be those about Cuppies. They are simply cute and adorable. I had always wished I had the skills to made those cute and lovely cuppies. And today, I had finally managed to make some though not as lovely as those in the blogs that I've seen, I am still happy for my effort. Will definitely try more cuppies recipes and hoping to get the correct piping skills.. Oh God! I am so tempted to sign up for the decorating courses in Wilton after making these. Do wish my dreams comes true when my budget allows ya.. ^Keeps fingers crossed^.


Vanilla Cupcakes
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup (130 grams) granulated white sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (210 grams) all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk

Buttercream Frosting
2 cups (230 grams) icing sugar, sifted
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk or light cream
Assorted food colors (if desired)

  1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add to the butter and egg mixture, along with the milk, and beat until combined.
  6. Evenly fill the cupcakes liners with the batter and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until nicely browned and cake tester inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  8. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, frost with icing.
  9. If you want flat topped cupcakes then slice off the dome of each cupcake, with a sharp knife, before frosting.
  10. For the frosting, cream the butter until smooth and well blended.
  11. Add the vanilla extract.
  12. With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the sugar.
  13. Add the milk and beat on high speed until frosting is light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Add a little more milk or sugar, if needed.
  14. Tint the frosting with desired food color (optional).
