Vanilla cupcakes are a sure winner for anyone wanting a great cupcake. They are by far, kid’s favourite and quite easy to make.
2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 3 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 4 egg whites from large eggs
• 1/2 cup shortening
• 1 cup of milk
• 2 large eggs
• 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pans with paper liners. Combine flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, salt, shortening, milk and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Mix at low speed for 2 minutes. Scrape bowl.
Add egg whites and mix at high speed until fluffy and smooth, approximately 2 minutes. Fill liners 1/2 to 2/3 full of batter.
Do not overfill. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes in pans then remove from pan, and place on wire racks to cool completely. Frost and decorate your vanilla cupcakes as desired.
Cupcakes are wonderful individual treats for co-workers. You can use them to celebrate any occasion such as a promotion.
