Ingredients To Make Vanilla Cupcakes

- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup milk
Instructions To Make Vanilla Cupcakes
Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a cupcake tray with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Avoid overmixing.
Divide the batter equally among the prepared cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.
Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once the cupcakes are completely cooled, you can frost and decorate them as desired. Enjoy these delightful homemade vanilla cupcakes that are sure to be a hit at any gathering or as a special treat for yourself!
