Vanilla Cupcakes

I had always wanted to try my hand at making cupcakes. First few attempts were disastrous. My son , for whom I was trying to make it refused to even touch it after the first bite. But then as they say practice makes perfect I finally found the right recipe and made these yummy cupcakes. They are soft and crumbly.

How do I know they are yummy? My son has two a day!!

The original recipe can be found at My modified version is as below.
Vanilla Cupcakes


1/2 Cup unsalted butter, bring it to room temperature
1 Cup granulated white Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla essense
1 1/2 Cup all purpose flour (Maida)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 Cup milk at room temperature

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 Degrees C for 5-8 mins. I do all my baking in microwave oven with convection mode. 
  2. Line the muffin cups with paper.
  3. In a deep bowl , beat the butter till its smooth. Add sugar to it and beat further till fluffy.
  4. Now add the eggs and vanilla essence and beat again. 
  5. Separately, sift the flour and baking powder 2-3 times so that the baking powder assimilates completely in the flour. divide it roughly in 3 portions. 
  6. Now add the flour and the milk to the butter-sugar-egg mix alternately. Start and end with the flour.
  7. Add it in this pattern Flour-milk-flour-milk-flour. After each addition beat the mix nicely. 
  8. Batter is ready. It would have a idly batter like consistency and should make roughly 12-13 cupcakes. Scrape down the sides and evenly fill in the muffin cups with a spoon. 
  9. Bake for 19-20 mins or until the toothpick when inserted into it comes out clean.

Let it cool down and enjoy!

  • Fill the muffin cups to the 3/4 levels that way your cupcake will remain inside the paper cups when fully baked.
  • Place the muffin cups on the wire mesh inside the microwave, that way they will get heated optimally.
