Sometimes you need to whip up a quick batch. Sometimes you are counting your calories. Other times you’re baking for a gluten free or vegan friend. And sometimes, you really feel like spending a leisurely afternoon making the absolute ultimate cupcakes. This is your one stop shop for the perfect vanilla cupcake for all tastes and diets!
Perfect Simple Vanilla Cupcake from Baking A Moment – an essential recipe for a classic vanilla cupcake. I only recently discovered this recipe (it was only posted on Baking A Moment a few days ago) and I made it yesterday. This is my new go-to recipe. Wonderfully moist and a brilliantly easy on-bowl recipe.
Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake from The Cupcake Project. The extent to which Steph (the blogger) goes to develop “the ultimate” cupcakes is impressive. So you truly know she creates very special cupcakes! There are more steps and ingredients than the usual cupcake recipe, but that’s because this recipe is special. Incredibly moist with a true vanilla flavour, I honestly can’t image a vanilla cupcake being more perfect.
Gluten Free Vanilla Cupcakes from Butterlust -classic vanilla cupcake, trust me when I say you don’t need to tell anyone these are gluten free.
Skinny Vanilla Cupcakes by Chocolate Covered Kate – these are seriously impressive cupcakes at only 100 calories each! This is a no fail recipe I have made time and time again, and no one has ever guessed they are low fat!
Vegan Classic Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream by Cake Merchant. This is not only seriously delicious but also super convenient because I don’t need to plan ahead by getting the butter or eggs to room temperature! I’ve always said that gluten free and vegan baking is so much more convenient – and this fits the bill perfectly!
