  • 1 egg
  • 1 eggyolk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 cup milk plus 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar or lemon juice- add acid to the milk then set aside for 5 minutes before using)


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir together with whisk, and set aside.

  6. Bake cupcakes in pre-heated oven for 12-14 minutes.
