Cupcake Princess' Vanilla Cupcakes

Cupcake Princess' Vanilla Cupcakes created by amandajonsonn

I have been searching for the perfect vanilla cupcake recipe for a long time, and I've found that most of them are dry. I finally changed a recipe and it makes the perfect vanilla cupcakes that are moist and not too dense. You can frost these cupcakes with many different types of frosting like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and more.

    I expected these to be yummy and beautiful but instead they were flat, ugly, and not perfectly round. The batter was also much to sweet. I don't recommend this recipe to anyone trying to make a REAL cupcake.

    I enjoyed the taste of this and thought it was plenty sweet. It was a bit too spongy for me and as others said it didn't rise to make a dome which I would have preferred. Still..an excellent taste..but may be on the lookout for another recipe for next time.

    Very nice. I added a small amount of baking powder in hopes of getting a better rise, as some reviewers mentioned that their's did not rise. Used 3 whole large eggs. Mine seemed to rise pretty well with that addition. They were fat, moist & had a nice springy, delicious crumb. Frosted with recipe # 54666. We'll be making this one again, thanks for sharing.
