Basic vanilla cupcakes

20 MIN
25 MIN



  1. With the rack in middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 12 cavity muffin tray with paper liners.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter with the sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until the mixture is smooth. At low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Scoop the batter into the molds.
  4. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool and store in an airtight container.


  1. Awseome! My kids loved it! Thank you for the recipe

  2. Decent. They are as the title says — basic. They turned out a bit dry and heavy for me (I was careful not to over mix). Baked them about 22 minutes, which was probably too long. Good enough to eat and serve but not to make again in my opinion.

  3. Il semble y avoir une faute de frappe pour la poudre à pâte. Est-ce 1 cuil à thé (5 mL) ou 1 et 1/2 cuil à thé (7,5 mL)? Sinon, ils sont vraiment délicieux!

  4. Definitely something wrong with the amount of baking powder...

  5. Les meilleurs..Merci Ricardo..tu es incroyable..une recette après l’autre absolument délicieuses.

  6. Is there an error in the baking powder amount?

  7. I did it exactly and the cupcakes were bland and heavy. Not sure if I somehow did it wrong but I'm going to try some other recipe.

  8. It tastes great! And very easy to do! Highly recommend!

  9. Amazing cupcakes. Adults and kids alike loved these!

  10. excellent cupcakes - I doubled the recipe and they turned out great. thank you Ricardo !
