Classic cupcake Recipe - A simple and easy way to bake!

Classic cupcake recipe

This is the first time I am baking Cupcakes. I wanted to bake them but I did not have the cupcake pan with me. Last week I made it a point to this cupcake pans so that I can make these cute little cupcakes and decorate them for Halloween.

Cupcakes are cute. They are little and make me feel like a kid when I eat them. This classic cupcake recipe is the base for many variations. I tried a few decorations on these cupcakes for Halloween which I will be sharing soon.

I have always wonders if Cupcakes and muffins are the same. But my recent research has taught me that there is a difference. To put is simple, Cupcakes are miniature cakes and Muffins are breads. Cupcakes are usually prepared for an special occasion and have icing on them. Whereas, Muffins are eaten for breakfast and generally has a fruit in it. Example Blueberry Muffins,Strawberry Muffins.

Coming to the Classic Cupcake recipe.

Ingredients: (For 12 cupcakes)

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 cup milk

Classic Cupcake Recipe


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F for 10 min.

Line your cupcake pan with paper or foil liners.

In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar together.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add the vanilla extract.

Now add the flour little by little mixing it well with the beaten mixture.

Add the milk and mix well.

Pour into the prepared cupcake pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Note: Pour so that it fills only 3/4 of the cup as the cupcakes will raise.

Your Classic Cupcake is ready. Cool it for 5 to 10 min before doing any decorations. You can store it in an air tight container and refrigerate it. It tastes awesome the next day.
