Light and fluffy cupcakes deliciously flavoured with vanilla. You can't go wrong with a good Vanilla Cupcake and that's what this recipe is!
Preheat the oven to 160ºC (fan assisted, 180ºC non fan) and line a cupcake tin with paper liners
Beat the butter and sugar together for roughly 5 minutes until light and fluffy
Add the vanilla extract and eggs and mix again
Add the flour and mix until it is combined. Spoon into 12 cupcake cases filling each 2/3 full
Bake in the oven for 16-18 minutes. Check they are cooked by piercing them with a cocktail stick, if the stick comes out clean they are cooked
Once the cakes have cooled completely, make the buttercream. Start by beating the softened butter for a minute or two
Add in the icing sugar and beat until mixed. Gradually add the milk a little at a time until you get a smooth but still quite thick consistency
