Homemade Yellow Cupcakes – What Did You Bake Today?

  As the cake mixes in my pantry get used up, I haven’t been replacing them.  I have decided to make cake from scratch.  This week I had a special request from my family for cupcakes.  I thought it would be a good opportunity to inaugurate my plan.  The result: everyone thought they were amazing and we had none left after dessert was served (yes, it made 18).
From The Good Home Cookbook
White Layer Cake (which isn’t white and became cupcakes)
2 cups flour
1 Tbls baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk
Frosting of your choice (I used a can….have to use up what I’ve got before that’s homemade, too)
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.  In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk.  Divide equally into 18 greased or paper lined cupcake pans.  Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until done.  Let sit in pan 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire wrack to cool.  Frost when completely cooled.

Grandma used to use those same cupcake papers at this time of year. So cute with the sprinkles. The only white cake recipe I’ve ever made that actually turned out white used egg whites only. I suppose the yolks are enough to tint it?
