Simple White Cupcakes
Serves: 24
  • ⅔ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2¼ cups cake flour
  • 3 tsp. of baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Grab two 12-count muffin tins and fill each hole with a cupcake liner.
  3. In a large stand alone mixer, cream the butter and sugar until well blended.
  4. Beat in the eggs and milk, then add the vanilla extract. Gently fold together until mixed.
  5. Now add the dry ingredients: I like to mix all three dry ingredients (flour, baking powder & salt) in a large bowl and then slowly stir them into the wet ingredients until smooth.
  6. Pour batter into each cupcake liner (about halfway). Bake at 350 for 15 - 17 minutes.
  7. Make sure to allow cupcakes to fully cool before decorating with frosting.
