I have made several times, and would recommend highly, the recipe that was featured on the Martha Stewart Show a couple of years ago: Billy's Vanilla, Vanilla Cupcakes. There is an associated buttercream frosting with it. I like to read the reviews to see what other cooks' experiences have been. If you can't find it, I will be glad to send it to you. I loved them and so did my adult son and his friends. Just enter the name of the cupcakes, as above. on her site's search box.

I was going to just give you the link, but here is the

link and the recipe from there:


Billy's Vanilla, Vanilla Cupcakes

Makes about 30 cupcakes

1 3/4 cups cake flour, not self-rising

1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes

4 large eggs

1 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Billy's Vanilla Buttercream

Colored Sprinkles, for decorating, optional

Alternate frosting: Billy's Chocolate Buttercream

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Line cupcake pans with paper liners; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment,

combine flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix on low speed

until combined.

Add butter, mixing until just coated with flour.

In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla.

With mixer on medium speed, add wet ingredients in 3 parts,

scraping down sides of bowl before each addition; beat until

ingredients are incorporated but do not overbeat.

Divide batter evenly among liners, filling about 2/3 full.

Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until a cake tester inserted in

the center comes out clean, 17 to 20 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Repeat process with remaining batter.

Once cupcakes have cooled, use a small offset spatula to frost tops

of each cupcake.

Decorate with sprinkles, if desired.

Serve at room temperature.

Billy's Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

6 to 8 cups powdered confectioners sugar

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment,

cream butter until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes.

With mixer on low speed, add 6 cups sugar, milk, and vanilla. Mix

until light and fluffy.

If necessary, gradually add remaining 2 cups sugar to reach

desired consistency.

Makes enough for 30 cupcakes.
