Its Christmas season and I’m sure you all must have started shopping, baking, planning for the big day and so are we. For us Christmas is one special festival and this year it’s going to be much more special because we will be celebrating with our family at Bangalore. And we are all excited for the celebration and will be enjoying the most. Hurray!! Today, I will be sharing vanilla cupcake recipe which is very simple, easy and perfect to gift your family, friends and loved ones for Christmas. Though the original recipe was for baking a cake, I tried the same recipe for baking cupcakes and they were super soft with delicious. I kept the cake simple by just sprinkling little chocolate syrup, but it did taste yummy even without it. You can also have a look at this simple vanilla sponge cake, which I had posted sometime back. This recipe was adapted from here.

Easy Vanilla Cupcakes - A Christmas Special


All Purpose Flour – 1 cup

Baking Powder – 1 tsp

Butter – 60 gms (I used amul butter)

Castor Sugar – 2/3 cup

Egg – 1, @ room temp

Milk – 1/3 cup

Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp


Preheat the oven to 180C for 10 minutes. Grease the muffin cups and set aside. Sieve flour, baking and keep aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, egg and vanilla essence using electric mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add flour in batches and alternatively add milk too. Mix until the cake mixture is well combined. Make sure you don’t over beat.

Spoon the mixture into the greased muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes. When a tooth pick is inserted at the center, it should come out clean. Cool down the cupcakes completely on a wire rack.


You can also do some frosting if you wish to or just top it with some chocolate syrup as I did.
