What is the difference between a vanilla cupcake and a regular cupcake?
Vanilla cupcakes usually use the same recipe as plain vanilla cake but with a shorter cooking time. The smaller size of the cupcakes means that there is more surface area on them than on a single full-size cake, and the heat from the oven won’t need as much time to cook the center of the cupcake.
What is the best vanilla cupcake recipe?
Using a stand mixer is the easiest way to make the best vanilla cupcakes. Whisk together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. These include sour cream, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. These vanilla cupcakes get more moisture and a nice tang from the addition of sour cream. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
What are the ingredients for a vanilla cupcake?
Use good quality vanilla extract, vanilla bean paste, or even a vanilla bean for true vanilla flavor. One vanilla bean = 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Next, add the eggs and oil to a separate bowl then whisk and set them aside. Add the cake flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
