     Today's Daily Cupcake Recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens, its a simple vanilla cupcake with a creamy vanilla frosting! So simple, yet soo delicious!! Cannot wait to make these!!


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat on medium to high speed about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl as necessary. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined after each addition. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.

Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from muffin cups and cool completely on wire rack. Generously spread Creamy Frosting over cupcakes. Makes 12 cupcakes.
