Recipe by cupcakechaser

Simple easy and very tasty. These are the first cupcakes I ever made on my journey to prefecting cupcakes. They are a fluffy cake but very flavorful and good either with frosting or just on their own.

The end result was good. When I put the milk into the bowl with the softened butter and eggs, the butter got hard, therefore I needed to heat it in the microwave to softened again. I will probably not make this again due to my problem.
