Basic Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

Vanilla Cupcakes

I call these basic cupcakes because with them, you can play around with all types of decoration topping to make different themed cupcakes, such as the adorable Easter Nest Cupcakes. Another reason is that they are really easy – I was successful on my first attempt even though I had only one successful baking attempt (and many disastrous attempts) prior to this.

Not only is the recipe easy, it also has minimal ingredients. If you are a total noob in baking just like me, I think this is the perfect cupcake recipe to use. As with all cupcakes (as opposed to muffins), they usually need some kind of frosting or fondue on top to make it more complete. However, they taste good on their own too and I am equally happy to enjoy them plain.

    Whenever I make cupcakes, it would sink as soon as I took out from the oven! LOL

    The recipe is almost the same as yours except the additional “10 grams” more for each ingredients.

    Hmmm… maybe I should try to make cupcake again and hope it wont sink again *crossing fingers* :D

    Those look good. Simple vanilla cupcakes are among my favorites.

    Honestly, I do not do any kind of baking. BUT.. something like this is making me want to throw some oven mitts and give it a shot.
