Mini Vanilla Cupcakes

Recipe Time!
Vanilla Tuesdays (I made this up, I made them on a Tuesday) – by the book “Cupcakes!” 
Makes 36 mini cupcakes 

What you’ll need: 

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 1 egg & 1 egg yolk (room temp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup skim milk


  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream (I switched it up a little!)
  • 1 tbsp skim milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • A bowl and some adorably pink sprinkles.

The How-To

  • Preheat to 350 deg F
  • Whisk the flour, salt and baking powder!
  • Electric-Mix the butter & sugar. Add egg and egg yolk, then the vanilla. Shazam! 
  • Add in the flour mixture/milk/flour/milk/flour (in parts, like that!)
  • Bake these babies in a mini cupcake pan for 13 minutes! Pop them out, cool and frost.
  • If you’re putting sprinkles on them, I suggest pouring the sprinkles into a bowl and rolling the tops of your frosted cakes in the sprinkles gently. Full coverage and no spillage, perfect!

Sometimes all you need is a simple cupcake recipe to give yourself a little extra oomph to get you through the day. And of course some prissy sprinkles to make sure you have some dignity in your treats – don’t be shy now! 

Hey. You guys rule. Thanks for making me feel awesome all the time.
