The Bare Naked Cupcakes

Good evening, all.

So as I was baking cupcakes for a friend's birthday a few days ago, I realized I've been slightly neglecting the baking side of my cupcakes.

My apologies.

But don't you even worry about it. Because today that shall change. Be prepared to be overwhelmed with my baking knowledge.

Ha. Just kidding.

But I do have some recipes to share with you, my darlings. Okay that's a lie. I have one, only one recipe. But I would also like to resurface a recipe I shared a long time ago. You know, like before people actually read my blog.

I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but vanilla cupcakes are my favorite. Like favorite evers. So why, you ask, have I never shared my vanilla cupcake recipe? I'm super protective of it.
Only jokes. I really don't know why. But here it is!

Vanilla Cupcakes
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
*Pre-heat oven to 350°F
*Cream the sugar and softened butter, beat in eggs and vanilla
*Beat in the flour and baking powder
*Stir in the milk
*Pour batter into greased and floured cake pan or a lined muffin tin
*Bake for 30-40 minutes (9x9 pan)
                 20 minutes (cupcakes)

And that's that. Super easy and super yummy!

I like to experiment with this recipe just because it's so simple.  Adding some sprinkles into the batter makes a really sweet (haha puntastic) funfetti cake. Also swapping the vanilla with coconut or mint or lemon extract is super good.

Recipe one= shared.

Recipe two= here it comes!

Well, I'm just going to pop up a link for y'all to follow instead of writing it all out again.

What beautiful cupcakes. Even before they got decorated.

Now don't get me wrong, I did indeed decorate these guys...and they will indeed be appearing in a future post. Just be patient with me.

On the count of three now. ONE. TWO. THREE.


Yes, you. And you. You too.

Well that's all I have for today, join me next time for "What summer looks like on a Cupcake."

Au revoir
Sydney <3
