    bernrome's Note:

    Amy Sedaris, so I hear, sells her cupcakes in New York City bakeries. I found this recipe for Amy's cupcakes on the web, but I don't remember where. This was my first time making cupcakes from scratch and I have to say, I was quite proud of the results. I gave them away to friends and family, and everyone loved them. March 2, 2011 Hi, guys! It was several years ago that I found and posted this recipe. Since then, Amy Sedaris has published a cookbook which contains her recipe for vanilla cupcakes. It's not the same as this one. :( Like I said before, I don't remember where I found this recipe, but I remember that the person who posted it was very certain about it being Amy Sedaris's recipe.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add in the eggs, two teaspoons vanilla, salt and baking powder. Add flour and milk in batches, starting and ending with flour. Stir until batter is smooth and satiny.
    3. 3
      Fill paper-lined muffin tins with batter. Bake at 375° for 18- 20 minutes.

      For frosting, whip together the box of confectioners' sugar, half-and-half, and one teaspoon vanilla until smooth and fluffy.
    5. 5
      Allow cupcakes to cool about 45 minutes and frost.
    6. 6
      *HINT* I added about one extra teaspoon of vanilla to the batter.
    7. 7
      This recipe didn't specify, but I used all-purpose flour.
    8. 8
      To the frosting, I added a bit more half-and-half to reach a thinner consistency.

      Excellent vanilla cupcake. I do add 1 extra tsp of vanilla and half a cup of greek yogurt with honey. They stay moist for days. My husband, who only liked chocolate cupcakes up until now, loves these and says that I do not need to make chocolate anymore.

      YUM! This was exactly what I was looking for - a super good, straightforward vanilla cupcake! WIth a perfect texture! I think this would also be so good using almond extract - next time!! Thanks for sharing! **I also want to add that these dried out pretty quickly, so be sure to frost as soon as they're cool.

      Great flavor, but the cupcakes weren't as fluffy as I would've liked. Next time I think I will separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, and then fold the egg whites into the batter to make fluffier cupcakes.
