Hi Bakers!

 

Does anyone have a great vanilla cupcake recipe? For the life of me I cant seem to get the one I have (below) right. From just looking at it, it seems that there should be more butter so I did it as is (which came out a bit crumbly) and I did it with more butter and it didn't come out right at all (it sunk in the middle).

 

Anyone here have a great recipe or can you give direction or making sure the cupcakes come out perfect? Thanks!

Ahttp://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/coconut-cupcakes-recipe.html Omit the shredded coconut. Replace the almond extract with more vanilla, or better yet, paste. I have much better results on cupcakes when I use grease proof liners that are standard extra tall. Moist crumbs on tester, not clean. Remember me when you really do bake your way to wealth! Good luck.

I use FromScratchSF's white cake recipe for cupcakes as well as cake.  Works very well and tastes wonderful.
