Made some mini cupcakes for my love’s mothers birthday. Simple vanilla cake with vanilla butter-cream and little pink sugar sprinkles. Simple, cute and tasty!
Vanilla Butter Cake
Makes 1 bunt pan or 3 8inch rounds… for mini cupcakes I used 1/2 batch and it made 48 cupcakes.
- 1 Cup Butter, softened
- 1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- 2 Tablespoons Vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 Cup Milk
Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing just until incorporated after each egg.
Add in vanilla and stir.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. ( I always cheat this step if at all possibly because I hate making more mess than needed. To skip this step for this recipe: add 1 cup of my flour and the baking soda, powder and salt in; mix. Then add in my milk and mix. Then add in my last cup of flour…)
Add half of the dry mixture into butter/sugar mixture and beat.
Add in milk and beat until combined then add in the remaining flour mixture.
