This is a great, classic recipe for vanilla cupcakes and a delicious vanilla butter cream, yum! It’s a recipe that can be used time and time again, for lots of different occasions. For Easter, I have simply added some cute mini eggs on top. But you can change it up depending on the season, these also make a great birthday cake if you pop them on a cake stand with some candles, a lovely addition to any party!
I have included my ‘go to’ recipe for 12 plain vanilla cupcakes below, but this recipe can be easily flavoured to make a chocolate version by simply adding 50g cocoa powder. If you’re a lemon lover, you can add in the zest of one lemon for a really quick lemon cupcake!
