simple vanilla cupcakes

Baking is one of the things I love to do when I have time of course. Cupcakes is my favorite thing to bake. It is quick, no fuss and always flop proof. Flop proof in a sense that I never over mix my batter. Besides it being the easiest thing to bake, the end result is always different. Although the recipe and method stays the same, you can decorate it to look different every time. It can also be filled with caramel, fruit and chocolate spread.

These homemade vanilla cupcakes are simple to make and delicious in taste. The texture is not dense and dry. I use oil instead of butter to make my vanilla cupcakes, which makes it moist and fluffy. With a few simple ingredients, this recipe is quick and easy. Which means you can have freshly baked cupcakes on your table in no time.
