Vanilla Cupcakes

Vanilla Cupcakes again?? confirmed that I've made some mistake with the proportion of flour used for the previous recipe!! I happen to see BakingMum also have a similar recipe so I 'restudy' the recipe and half the recipe from there :) better result this time, raise properly & fluffier texture...

  • 90gm cake flour
  • 70gm plain flour
  • 120gm castor sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 110gm unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
  1. Sift flour & baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Mix in sugar & salt evenly.
  2. Beat in butter on medium speed till just evenly coated with flour.
  3. Mix eggs, milk & vanilla essence in a bowl. Beat in gradually into flour mixture till just combined. Do not overbeat.
  4. Scoop into baking cups 2/3 full and bake in preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 20-25mins till golden brown.
Recipe adapted from BakingMum

Is it possible to replace cake flour with plain flour? I am confused why some recipes use cake flour some use all purpose flour? texture is softer if use cake flour? Tks.

u can replace it. Cake flour gives a lighter & softer cake.
