How to make it 

To Make the Cupcakes:

  • Warm the oven up to 350 degrees F. Take a cupcake pan and line it with paper sleeves.
  • Put the baking soda, salt, flour, sugar, and powder into a big bowl and mix them together with a whisk.
  • Take the eggs apart. You can make a custard or a batch of French frosting with the yolks.
  • Mix the wet ingredients with a whisk in a different bowl. (Don’t worry if the batter is thick!)
  • Mix the wet and dry items together. Mix everything together.
  • Fill up about two-thirds of the way to the top of each cupcake paper with batter.
  • Put it in the oven for 18 minutes, or until the middle feels soft.

To make the buttercream:

  • Cream the butter in a stand mixer with a paddle tool while it is still room temperature. Two at a time, add the confectioners’ sugar. Put in the vanilla, milk, salt, and cream. Mix until it’s fluffy.
  • Put the mixture in a sewing bag. Put a big scoop of frosting on top of each cupcake.

Q1. How long will these cupcakes keep for?

If you cover these cupcakes, they’ll be fine overnight. They should be at room temperature before you eat them, but you can put them in the fridge for three days. Cake with butter needs to get a little warmer. You can wrap the cupcakes up and freeze them for up to two months if they are only plain.

Q2. Can you make this cupcake recipe with whole eggs?

YES! If you want a whiter cake, you can leave out the whites. If you do use the whole egg, just cut the amount of sour cream by 1/4 cup.

Q3. Butter Vs. Oil

Because I LOVE the taste of butter, I used it in this recipe. But if you’re making cupcakes ahead of time and going to chill them, you might want to use vegetable oil instead of butter or not use any butter at all. When it gets cold, an oil-based cake will stay softer.

Q4. Hich type of frosting is best for vanilla cupcakes?

Mix the butter that has been at room temperature with the powdered sugar, a little salt, and the vanilla extract. Very quick and a big hit with everyone. Read my post about vanilla buttercream for all the tips and tricks, as well as a full movie on how to do it.
