1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup, plus 2 tbsp whole milk
Preheat oven to 350
Grease and flour a 9×9 inch pan or prepare 12 muffin tins with paper liners or grease.
In medium bowl, or kitchen stand mixer – cream together butter and sugar. Cream really well, until mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well between each one until batter looks full of air. Add vanilla. Combine flour with baking powder and sift. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Pour in the milk and stir or blend until mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pour into prepared cake pan or muffin tins.
Bake for 30 minutes for cake, or 20-25 for muffins (test at 20 minutes).
This recipe is so versatile – today’s mix was because Sloan wanted PINK cupcakes, and pink they were …. you can use this for a layer cake – just double for a 2 layer cake, or it makes 12 smaller cupcakes.
