Vintage Vanilla Cupcakes

By Courtyb34 @CourtyB34
You know how the main flavors of cupcakes, cake, ice cream, basically anything dessert is chocolate and vanilla right? I found this recipe in my mom's old cookbook, not exactly vintage, but vanilla cupcakes have been around for a LONG time, and I decorated them "vintagy" so, they are kinda. The recipe dates back, so there you go! I made these last night, frosted them this morning and took pictures this morning. The lighting is so much better!

                 INGREDIENTS

         ~ 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
         ~ 1 cup granulated sugar

         ~ 8 tablespoons of butter (1 stick), softened
         ~ 1/2 cup sour cream
         ~ 1 large egg
         ~ 2 large yolks
         ~ 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake/muffin pan with liners (and if you don't have cupcake liners, just swipe oil inside them)Add your flour to a mixing bowlVintage Vanilla Cupcakes

This part is a bit confusing... I didn't know if I had enough sour cream, so I didn't go in order, and this part is kinda all jumbled. I did end up having enough sour cream, so I put that in before the salt (Yes, I didn't check ingredients before I started making the cupcakes.. I need to do that next time)Vintage Vanilla Cupcakes

I came up with a cute way to do 'flat' cupcakes. All you do is put the little cupcake liners in a big muffin pan, not a small muffin pan. Scoop the cupcake batter into the liners (that are in the big muffin pan) and bake them for 20:00 min. When they are done, they look like this....Vintage Vanilla Cupcakes
