There are tons of recipes for the most classic cupcake of them all. The vanilla cupcake! I have lost track on how many different recipes, that I have tried to myself. Some were good, some were bad and some failed to a disaster. There are many different opinions on what makes a good vanilla cupcake. So, no wonder why there are thousands of vanilla cupcake recipes out there.
I went through a stack of old recipes, and I were thrilled to find an old recipe for vanilla cupcakes. I remember them as a bit too greasy but with a good taste. So I decided to make some small modifications to the recipe and made a test batch. They came out great.
A perfect vanilla cupcake! That bake perfect too. Half of the paper cases were filled with a heaped tablespoon of batter and the rest were filled 3/4 full. They are good without frosting but they are certainly also good with a nice swirl of frosting on top. So far, I have tried them with Angel Feather Icing. It is a really good combination. I cannot wait to try them with other types of frosting.
These cupcakes are also good the next day. Would you like to try the classic vanilla cupcakes? Then scroll down for the recipe.
