They are so good! The cake is soft, and flavorful, very vanilla-y. If that is a word. lol

Add eggs one at a time, beating well in between. Add vanilla. Beat in half the milk, then half the flour. Beat in the remaining milk. Then beat in the remaining flour, the baking powder and the salt.

Fill paper lined cupcake pan  about 3/4’s full.  Bake for 15 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick.  Cool completely before frosting.  Yield: 24 cupcakes

Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
2 cups powdered sugar

Combine all ingredients in bowl and beat well until frosting is smooth and creamy.  I used about a tablespoon of frosting for each cupcake. The cupcakes are so flavorful, and the frosting is rich, so you don’t need a lot of it. I had plenty to frost all 24 cupcakes. Ok, there was a spoonful left. And I ate it…….
