Cupcakes are a fun and creative way to make your dessert or event extra special. You can take one vanilla recipe and make it the base of many different flavors.

Add the flour mixer in three batches with the buttermilk in between. Then add the vanilla extract. Scoop your batter into liners with an ice cream scoop. Bake 18 to 20 minutes. Check often, don't overbake. Remove from oven and let cool. Once cooled - use an apple corer and core out the middle of the cupcake.
