Hello! Welcome to baking class! I am your host, Julie Albright!

Julies_Cooking_Class_2 Today I will show you how to make vanilla cupcakes using a real recipe so that you can make them at home, too! Before you begin, preheat the oven to 350º and line cupcake pans with liners.

Combine 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup shortening, 1 cup 2% milk, and 1/12 teaspoons vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl.

Mix at low speed for two minutes and scrape bowl.  Then add 4 egg whites and mix at high speed for approximately 2 minutes and until fluffy and smooth.

Fill liners 1/2 to 2/3 of batter. Be careful not to overfill.

Bake cupcakes 20 to 25 minutes in the oven or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

When the cupcakes are done baking, let them cool for 10 minutes in pans. Then remove from the pans and place on wire rack to cool completely.

Now it’s time to decorate! Frost cupcakes with an icing bag.

You can also add sprinkles if wanted.

Ta-da! All done! Thanks for baking with me! 🙂

  5. Very cute! I adore the new Baking Cart & Treats. I just wish they sold the treats separately because I don’t want to spend $85!
