Perfect Bake® recipe


Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake

\"This is it, Stef!! This really, really is the Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe!!! I can’t believe we finally found it, but I know in my cupcake-loving heart that we did. I will honestly be dumbstruck if this cupcake isn’t the ultimate because I can’t imagine a more perfect vanilla cupcake.\"

That was a quote from Kate Dorman, one of the Vanilla Cupcake Recipe Cupcake Project Explorers (my team of 50 test bakers that helped perfect my vanilla cupcakes by baking three rounds of cupcakes and providing feedback).
