Best Recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes

This picture says it all.  These are definitely the best vanilla cupcakes ever. The kids loved the cupcakes I baked today.  This is my second batch.  The first set of cupcakes I made were not as moist and tasty as this one.  I used more vanilla, butter and oil with this set.  Turned out fabulous…not to mention the fact that I dropped 8 of the 12 cupcakes in the oven when I was trying to get them out.  This cupcake almost looks like an ice cream cone.  My daughter loves a lot of whip cream on top of her cupcakes. The whip cream on top..yep..I made it myself. Check out my post, How to Make Homemade Whip Cream. Delicious!  The recipe for the cupcakes is below.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


1   3/4 cups of all-purpose flour

1 cup of sugar

1  1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

2 eggs

1/4 cup of unsalted butter. (Leave out so that it is room temperature)

1/3 cup of  sour cream

2/3 cup of whole milk

1/4 cup of vegetable oil

1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract (I added an extra 1/4 teaspoon….love vanilla)



  • In a bowl, blend eggs, oil, sour cream and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar.  Set aside.
  • Blend the butter into the flour mixture until it is fully blended.
  • Add the egg mixture into the flour mixture and beat until combined.
  • On low speed, add in milk until combined.  I ended up adding a tiny bit more of milk. (perhaps 2 tablespoons)
  • The batter will turn out to be thin.
  • When filling your cupcake liners, don’t fill to the top…..The cupcakes will end up being high-topped.  Fill them a little over half-way.
  • Bake the cupcakes for 13-15 minutes, depending on oven.  Check to see if they are done by inserting a toothpick into muffin.  If toothpick comes out clean, they’re ready.
  • Remove from cupcake pan and let cool.
  • Enjoy

  2. Gradually increase to Speed 4 and cream for 2 minutes. However, it
    is also true that not everyone has the same interest in preparing
    cakes in their homes and this is the reason;
    you need to ask for the recipes at the best sources, where you
    will find innumerable types of cake recipes. Cupcake Day is an annual event celebrated on August 18,
    August 20 or the third Monday in August, depending on your
    calendar of choice.
