Basic vanilla cupcake recipe to decorate

If there is a basic recipe that we have to take into account, it is the vanilla cupcakes to decorate. They are the simplest and most versatile when it comes to decorating and with small changes we can make other very interesting flavors and options.

For example, if we replace part of the flour with cocoa, we will have delicious chocolate cupcakes as a base. If we also change part of the flour for some ground dried fruit, such as almond, pistachio or hazelnut, we get some cupcakes with slightly denser but very juicy dough. The possibilities are varied, do not be afraid to try.

How to make vanilla cupcakes to decorate

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 35 m
  • Elaboration 20 m
  • Cooking 15 m

We heat the oven to 160º with heat up and down, without air. We prepare a tray for baking cupcakes with six normal-size capsules. Beat the butter with the sugar until it forms a cream. We fry the egg and the vanilla (in powder, paste or essence), without stopping to beat.

On the other hand we mix the flour with the yeast and add it to the sifted dough. We combine alternating with milk and mix with a tongue until the dough is homogeneous. With an ice cream scoop, pour a "ball" of dough into each capsule.

We bake for about 15 minutes, it depends a little on the oven and the size of our cupcakes. Let the cupcakes rest on the tray, outside the oven, for about five minutes and put them on a rack until they cool completely.

With what to accompany the vanilla cupcakes to decorate

The basic vanilla cupcakes to decorate we must keep them away from the air so that they do not spoil. We can do it for two or three days before decorating them to keep them juicy, much longer will not be possible. An airtight can or pot is a perfect place for this.
