I have been making cakes for a while.

There is something perfect about a fluffy cake and sweet frosting. To me, the makings of a good cake will also require few ingredients, of which you probably already have on hand in your kitchen and just a few minutes in the oven.

However, when I make a cake, I have to admit that I sometimes find it hard to resist eating too many slices. A whole cake in my kitchen and me being an empty nester is not a good combination. I know myself. For this reason, I love to create small-batch desserts whenever possible.

Previously I have shared on the blog a recipe for a Key Lime Pie for Two as well as Red Velvet Cupcakes. Today I decided to keep it simple and share with you some classic vanilla cupcakes. This recipe is a good one to keep in your kitchen toolkit because it makes the lightest, fluffy, and delicious recipe that you will want to make again and again.
