I bake a lot and pretty successful when I tackle something and never tried vanilla cupcakes. A good recipe seems hard to come by but this seemed the best option. However, I saw a lot of things wrong with it. Baking soda, butter, salt, vanilla, flour was all wrong I thought. Heating up the milk and butter seemed weird too. I followed the suggestions of Naples34102 and made the modifications. I've never used baking soda for cakes or cupcakes but have for cookies. For those of you wanting it sweet...vanilla cupcakes are supposed to be subtly sweet not overly sweet like chocolate or any other flavor. If you like them sweet you could add more sugar but you will have to modify the rest of the recipe. This is what I used. 1 stick of butter, softened, 1 cup of sugar, 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk, 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 2/3 cup of milk, 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. salt. Sift dry ingredients and set aside. In small bowl cream your butter and sugar and add your eggs one at a time stiring after each. Add your vanilla and add milk slowly and stir. Pour in dry ingredients a little at a time while mixing. Don't over mix. I actually did this all by a wooden spoon to keep me from over mixing. Pour into baking cups in your muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes. Came out delicious! People should be careful when posting their things. You need a good base recipe and probably should compare others like it. Then you can add your own twist. :)
