Recipe by Tessa Arias

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (191 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 stick (113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk

Directions

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Add the dry ingredients and milk alternatively, starting and ending with the flour, beating well after each addition. Continue beating for one minute. Divide the batter between the cupcake cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  2. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
