I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I’d be bringing you some new basic favorites and I started with a Banana Chocolate Loaf cake. Today, we are talking about these Extra Easy  cupcakes and I’m pumped! One of the things that I’m always messing with is vanilla cake or simple cupcakes. It’s the never ending quest for all the best versions.There are so many ways to vary a Simple cupcake and I want the best of all of them! I’m greedy like that. Plus, I know not every has the same idea of the perfect cupcake, so I like to have options.

So let’s talk a bit about these Extra Easy cupcakes. These cupcakes use butter and are lighter and super moist. We’ve got the usual suspects in this cupcake, starting with the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Easy, common ingredients that you should totally have in your pantry already. Mix ’em all together and set ’em aside.

Next are the wet ingredients:butter, sugar, milk, vanilla extract and eggs. The butter is the fat component instead of vegetable oil and in my opinion, tends to make a more moist cake that stays moist for longer. Totally true for these cupcakes. The milk  adds to the structure of the cake, in addition to adding moisture. Milk adds fluff and I love some fluff.

I used a teaspoon of vanilla extract to make sure there’s plenty of delicious vanilla flavor. Then the eggs add more moisture, structure and flavor. I switched it up in these and went with whole eggs instead of egg whites. No more egg yolks getting wasted here!

Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined, the milk is added.
