Vanilla Cupcakes

I had problems posting yesterday after baking. I kept getting the same message that my URL was wrong for 15 minutes. My posting was done halfway and I gave up and logged out. So I am just posting this on Wednesday 16 June at 11.29am.

This recipe is from one of the blogs I usually read but for the life of me, I can't remember from which blog. If you do happen to pass by and recognise your recipe, I apologise for not crediting you.

What I used:

195g cake flour
140g plain flour
140g caster sugar (I used 130g)
100g light brown sugar (I used 90g)
1 tablespoon baking powder

225g butter, cubed

4 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence

What I did:

1. Put all ingredients A into mixing bowl and mix till well-mixed.

2. Add in the soften butter into A and mix.

3. Whisk ingredients C lightly and pour into the mixing bowl gradually. Use a whisk to do the mixing at medium speed until combined, then go on high speed for 2 minutes.

4. Fill up cupcake tin and bake at 165 degrees C for 20 to 25 minutes.

The texture is spongy according to my younger daughter who did the tasting. As I wanted to give some to my grandsons, I decided to put some frosting and sprinkles.


  1. is that a grey one in the middle? how unusual!

  2. Hi Rita,
    It is grey. I was too lazy to use another icing bag and so the chocolate and the vanilla cream got mixed.
