Classic Vanilla Cupcake


 

The basic classic cupcakes that will always remain in fashion and the classic frosting that you can never get enough of – vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Traditional cupcakes are always a crowd-pleaser.  These cupcakes are loved by all. You can whip-up batches upon batches but can never get bored of it. They are great for everyday treats or fancy them with icing and decorate them for special occasions.

I like making these cupcakes as it is a simple one-bowl recipe and that makes it an excellent project to do with my little girl. They are almost too easy to bake.

Simple, sweet treats that will become your go-to vanilla cupcake recipe in no time!
