This recipe was created by me, an 8 year old boy who loves baking. I’ve tried lots and lots of recipes but this one is the best!!


Amount Ingredient 3 eggs 1 3/4 cup sugar 1 stick butter – softened 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup whole milk 2 cups cake flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the sugar and butter until well blended.
Add the eggs and beat until they are completely mixed in.
Combine the cake flour, baking powder and salt together in a separate bowl, then sift them together.
Add the sifted ingredients to the sugar mixture and mix.
Add vanilla, then add whole milk and mix.
Pour into greased pan.
Bake for approx 20 minutes.

I love that you are so young and like to bake. I will be sure to give these a try because I think people your age know best about good tasting cupcakes. Thanks Henry!

Henry, Do you use unsalted butter in this recipe? I would assume so but I would like to make them exactly how you do it.
