Vanilla yummy Cupcakes

220g self raising flour
160g plain flour
225g butter, softened
340g caster sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
4 large eggs
125ml whole milk
125ml natural yoghurt
2 tsp vanilla extract

180 degrees/gas mark 4 oven, approx 20 mins. Perfect!

Yield between 2 dozen and 30 vanilla cupcakes.

1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line your cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

2.. Mix together cake flour, flour, sugar, and baking powder. Make sure these are combined well.

3. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, add butter. It will be easier to cut the butter into small squares at room temperature. Don't just add the whole stick.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, yogurt and vanilla extract. Add this to the dry vanilla cupcake ingredients.

5. Beat until combined but don't over beat!

6. Fill 2/3 full cupcake tins with cupcakes batter.

7. Bake for about 15-20 minutes (give or take a few).

You will know your vanilla cupcakes are done when you pat on the tops and they spring back up at you. If they sink then the vanilla cupcakes need more time.

As far as frosting the vanilla cupcakes goes, I would suggest using the buttercream frosting recipe. Decorate your vanilla cupcakes with colored sprinkles, sugar candies or fruit.
