Basic Vanilla Cup Cake / Easy & Simple Vanilla Cup Cake !!

  Classic vanilla cup cake is one of the easiest recipe. At first when I came to US, cupcake is the pilot recipe I baked in oven. I am so scared to use oven, so I couldn’t make it perfect cupcake but it was good my husband loved it & encouraged me. He is my best critic & support.

Simple tips for making perfect cupcake is the ingredients like butter, egg, yogurt / sore cream must be in room temperature. The cake batter must be not too thick or thin. If the batter get too thick don’t worry just add a little milk or water to get right consistency.

So here is the gorgeous vanilla cupcake with yogurt frosting & honey drizzled on top !!

Bon Appetite !!
