Full Recipe For Moist Vanilla Cupcakes
They’re nothing like those dry ultra fluffy bakery cupcakes they make you sad and full of regret, these are worth it! A bit of advice on the ingredients.
You can get the cheapest flour, sour cream, milk, and even butter but you have to get good vanilla for this recipe.
It’s the main flavor and you want it to shine so go find a good real vanilla extract and if you want to get points for being fancy use some vanilla bean paste too while you’re at it. People love seeing the little specks of vanilla in the cupcakes.
