Homemade Vanilla Cupcakes all decked out for Valentines Day!

Our family loves these simple to make cupcakes. The ultimate taste tester is my eight year old granddaughter. She tells me the absolute truth and is VERY discriminating. She is eating one of these right now and helping me describe them for you.

She LOVES these simple homemade vanilla cupcakes. Of course, for kids, the homemade Buttercream frosting and sprinkles turn these plain cupcakes into something magical! She ‘stepped up’ and ate her cupcake without the frosting and she still loves them! So I’m happy. Kid tested and approved is a biggy for me.

Deliciously simple homemade vanilla cupcakes

These little cuties would make a deliciously pretty treat tray for a Valentine party, or anytime!

Homemade Vanilla cupcakes are very simple to make. I’m using my trusty homemade Greek yogurt and coconut oil for best flavor and texture. We really love baked goods that use these, good for you, ingredients. Of course they are a treat, so I don’t lean too hard on the nutrition for this recipe.  I recommend the homemade buttercream frosting for a truly delicious flavor topper.

Ingredients

  • Cupcake Recipe:
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Frosting Recipe:
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons milk

Instructions

Vanilla Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat all ingredients in large bowl with mixer on low speed just to moisten.
  3. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes.
  4. Spoon into 12 paper-lined muffin cups
  5. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cupcake comes out with moist crumbs.
  6. Cool in pan 5 minutes.
  7. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack
  8. Frost as desired

Frosting Recipe:

  1. Beat butter in a large deep bowl until light and fluffy. This will take several minutes. Do not stop beating the butter until it turns pale and velvety.
  2. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating on low speed,(or you will get a face full of powdered sugar!) after each addition.
  3. Beat in vanilla.
  4. Add milk until you get the consistency you need.(NOTE: for decorator frosting make it dense enough to hold it’s shape on a wooden spoon and not fall off the spoon when it is tilted).
  5. Frost cooled cupcakes with Frosting as you desire. I used a decorator tip. It was easy and fun. Sprinkles are fun too if you like!
