Bake and Shop

Vanilla cupcakes are a staple for any person who loves baking or just starting out. This easy to follow recipe will ensure you have the best tasting cupcakes! For my beginners bakers, it’s good to know that a standard cupcake consist of four staple ingredients. The four staple ingredients are dry (flour and sugar), fats (butter or oil), liquids (eggs, water and/or milk) and agents that causes batter to rise (baking powder or baking soda). By having these staple ingredients in your cupcake recipe, you can create buttery and moist deliciousness every time.
