Happy Easter everyone! I wanted to share my favorite vanilla cupcake recipe with you, the one that I love to bake every Easter. I particularly enjoy baking a few dozen extra and delivering them to friends and neighbors.
Originally inspired by Nigella Lawson’s recipe, I’ve adapted it over the years into my own gluten-free version. I like to use a gluten-free baking mix, such as Bob’s gf Baking Mix or the Cup4Cup flour. These Cupcakes are still filled with sugar, making them a true ‘treat’!
The Royal Icing that tops these is one of the reasons I love them so much. When left alone for a few hours a light crust will form atop each little cake, providing texture and sealing in moisture. These cakes will sit all day and still be light and moist, or keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
let them eat cake!
