Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes

Leave a comment

Update: 14th April 2014

The recipe below is great if you want to cook cupcakes with a flat top for cake toppers. If you would like your cupcakes to rise then add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder with the flour. I like to sprinkle some icing sugar on the cupcakes as they really do taste sensational! A winner every time.


These are the best vanilla cupcakes ever! My friend gave me the recipe after she attending a cake baking course (she also has a blog: The secret is the ratio between the butter, sugar and flour (which you increase to a measure of 150g) and the eggs (two medium). Fluffy, firm, tasty, golden brown… yum! The cupcake toppers were bought online from who I would recommended.



  • 150g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150g flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Cream butter and sugar until white and fluffy
  2. Add eggs one at a time and mix until combined
  3. Slowly add flour mixing continually
  4. Add vanilla extract
  5. Divide between 12 cake cups
  6. Cook in the overn at 160/180 for 30 minutes

Enjoy and let me know your thoughts – Katie S&H
