Same story as my chocolate chip cookies but for a scrumptious vanilla cupcake recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line (1) muffin tins with 12 cupcake liners. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, using an electric or stand mixer  on medium speed, beat eggs and sugar for about 2 minutes, or until light and creamy.
