Vanilla cupcakes are one of my favorite go-to recipes. They’re easy to make and they appeal to just about everyone. They can be topped off with any flavor of frosting – which means that it isn’t difficult to get chocolate-lovers to go for them – and they can even be eaten completely plain by those who don’t have much of a sweet tooth. There are lots of good vanilla cupcake recipes to choose from, but the Easy Vanilla Cupcake Recipe that I’m sharing over on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!) is a great one to start with. The recipe takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish and produces cupcakes that are fluffy and flavorful every time.
I’m partial to vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting, so I recommend topping these off with Vanilla Frosting, but a creamy Chocolate Frosting is a good choice, too. If you are keeping the frosting simple, I recommend finishing a batch off with a few of colorful sprinkles to make your cupcakes pop!
