  • What kind of cupcakes? I usually make these for my friends and they like them.

    Cocoa Cupcakes
    1 1/2 c. flour
    1 c. sugar
    1/3 c. cocoa
    3/4 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 c. buttermilk or sour milk
    1/2 c. Wesson oil
    1 egg
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 c. boiling water
    Sift flour, measure and re-sift 3 times with sugar, cocoa, salt and soda, the last time into a bowl. Add butter, milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Beat until all ingredients are blended. Add boiling water and beat 1/2 minute. Spoon the batter carefully into greased cupcake pans, filling them half full of batter. Bake 17 to 20 minutes in a moderate oven, 350 degrees. Makes 8 to 10 medium cupcakes.

  • Any cake recipe you find will work. Just bake for 15-20 mins instead of the 30-40 for a cake.

  • Basic Yellow Cupcakes
    3 cups cake flour sifted
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
    2/3 cup butter or margarine
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    1 1/4 cups milk
    About 12 standard cupcakes. Each cupcake serves 1.
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of two 8-inch round cake pans and line with waxed paper or parchment paper. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Cream sugar and butter together until light. Add eggs and vanilla to creamed mixture and beat until thoroughly mixed. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Continue beating one minute. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on rack; remove and cool completely before decorating.
