Bake Club Every Cupcake Has a Story

Makes 12 cupcakes


4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted

¾ cup sugar

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 eggs


½ cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons extract (vanilla or otherwise)


½ cup milk

Splash vinegar or lemon juice


1 ¾ cup flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt


Up to 2 cups fun stuff to mix in or sprinkle on top before baking

Frostings, Fillings

Extra fun stuff for toppings


Heat the oven to 350°F. Line the cupcake pan with cupcake liners. 


In a medium bowl whisk together your butter, sugar and eggs until well combined. Whisk in oil and vanilla.  Whisk in buttermilk.


In a large bowl, combine your flour, baking powder and salt, then whisk in your wet ingredients until smooth. Stir in any/all fun stuff you choose.


Use a  ¼ cup to scoop your batter into the lined cupcake tin. Top cupcake batter scoops with any additional fun stuff you choose. Bake for 18 to 20 at 350°F minutes - until the tops brown slightly and they toothpick clean.  Using oven mitts, remove from the oven and cool completely in the tin. 


Tell YOUR story through the flavors you choose- from cake batter flavor to fun stuff you mix in or top. Care out the centers and fill will one or more filling, frost the tops, glaze them, or heck, leave them bare if that’s YOUR way, YOUR voice, YOU!
