Easy Vanilla Cupcakes

These vanilla cupcakes are so easy to make, simply mix all of the ingredients together and bake. I mentioned when I shared my recipe for caramel cupcakes a couple of weeks ago that I’m working on creating a mix-and-match cupcake index with all my sponges, buttercreams and fillings in one place so you can create your own cupcakes using any combination you can think of

Fairly Cakes are easy to make and very versatile for kids parties or just for a treat. To make our cupcakes we use the following simple ingredients, although first pre-heat the oven to 180c. There should be enough mixture for 24 cupcakes, so if you don’t have more than one then simply leave half the mixture aside for now. Place the cupcakes in the oven for around 10-12 minutes and then leave on a wire rack to cool If you only used have the mixture then divide once more and bake the rest of the cupcakes
