Vanilla cupcakes are made with vanilla-flavored batter and/or topped with vanilla frosting. They can also be filled with vanilla curd. To celebrate the National Vanilla Cupcake Day, you can pick a couple of cupcakes at a local bakery or coffee shop. You can also bake them yourself and treat your friends and relatives. Here is an easy recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners; set aside. In a bowl, whisk together 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 3/4 tsp salt. In another bowl, cream together 12 tbs butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add 4 large eggs, one at a time, and mix until incorporated. Beat in 2 tsp pure vanilla extract.
Scoop batter into liners, each must be about three-quarter full. Bake about 20 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Let cupcakes cool on a wire rack and top with frosting. To make the frosting, combine 1 cup softened butter, 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, and 1/8 tsp salt in a bowl. Beat till blended. Add 1 tsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract, beat until smooth and creamy.Remind me with Google Calendar
