 Vanilla Vanilla Cupcakes   
from the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing pans
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting pans
  • 1 ½ cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour 2 12-cup muffin tins and then line with cupcake papers or grease. Mix the flours together in a bowl. In a glass measure, mix the milk and vanilla.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add the sugar gradually and beat until fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with the milk and the vanilla, beating well after each addition. Spoon the batter into muffin cups about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake until the tops of the cupcakes spring back when lightly touched, 20 to 22 minutes. Remove cupcakes from the pans and cool on a rack before icing.
