Simple Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe…

Prep: 30 mins

Cooking: 15-20 mins

Serves: 12 Cupcakes


You will need…

110g/4oz butter

110g/4oz caster sugar

2 free-range eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

110g/4oz self-raising flour

1-2 tbsp milk

12 medium sized cupcake cases


Preheat the oven to 180C

Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale. Beat in the eggs a little at a time and stir in the vanilla extract

Fold in the flour, adding a little milk until the mixture is of a dropping consistency. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full and place them on a baking tray


Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden-brown on top and a skewer inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean

Leave to cool for 10 minutes

Once cooled, add your icing or a topping of your choice.  I used ‘Cake Décor, Two Colour Stripes Cupcake Frosting – Strawberry and Vanilla’ (I was pretty bad at applying the icing neatly but at least it tasted great!)




Happy Eating!
