- 1 cup butter,softened
- 11/2 cups sugar
- 1 tbsp salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 175C. Line 12 regular-size muffin cups with paper liners.
Beat butter, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl with mixer on high speed for 1 minute or until well blended. Add eggs; beat for 2 minutes or until fluffy. On low speed beat in milk and vanilla (batter may look curdled), then flour just until blended.
Spoon scant 1⁄4 cup into each muffin cup, filling each about 2⁄3 full.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in centres of cupcakes comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes before removing from pan to rack.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 with remaining batter. Let the cupcakes cool completely before icing and decorating.
