Vanilla cupcakes

April 28, 2011



Over the past few days I have been trying out a few chocolate and vanilla cupcake recipes. We had a big order for the shop, for someone’s birthday and I wanted to make sure the cupcakes were awesome. I went through FOUR chocolate cupcake recipes before we settled on one. And 2 vanilla ones. I mean you would think these would be the easiest things in the world to bake – wrong and right, I guess.

The ones we landed up making came out really nicely and I was really happy with them, but if any of you have got any fool proof cupcake recipes to share, please share x xx



Vanilla cupcakes – Makes 12

° 125g butter
