Vanilla Cupcakes





  • Have all ingredients at room temperature before you begin.
  • An ice cream scoop works greats to fill your cupcake liners evenly. I like the #20 scoop which holds about 3 tablespoons of batter.
  • Why the amaretto?  The amaretto liqueur serves a couple of purposes.  One, it adds a nice hint of almond flavoring without that in-your-face flavor that some almond extracts give.  Two, it adds some sweetness and extra shelf-life to the cupcake along with a little added moisture.  If you prefer not to use a liqueur in the recipe, you can substitute equal amounts of simple syrup.
