  • Author: Billy Reece of Billy's Bakery
  • Yield: 30 cupcakes 1x


  • 1 3/4 cups cake flour, not self-rising
  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix on low speed until combined.
  4. Add the diced butter, mixing until just coated with flour.
  5. In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk, and vanilla.
  6. With mixer set to medium speed, add wet ingredients in 3 parts, scraping the bowl with a non-stick spatula as needed.
  7. Only mix until ingredients are just incorporated - do not over beat.
  8. Fill cupcake liners with batter, about 2/3 full.
  9. Bake about 17 to 20 minutes (your oven may vary!) or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cupcakes may not be golden.
