Classic vanilla Cupcakes

If you’re looking for a super soft, moist, and flavorful vanilla cupcake, then this recipe is for you. I feel like once you have a really solid vanilla cupcake recipe to work with, it opens up so many other possibilities in the realm of cupcakes. Add sprinkles, chocolate chips, or nuts to the batter to change things up.
