Scratch Vanilla Cupcakes

I love a good cupcake!  I know you can buy a mix at the store, but honestly, you can make them from scratch just as fast and they taste so much better.  These vanilla cupcakes don’t have any fancy ingredients so you’ll be able to find everything right in your pantry and fridge.  Plus you can even swap out the vanilla extract for almond or lemon if you’d like a different flavor.  We stuck with a classic vanilla and topped them off with cream cheese frosting and some sprinkles.  Once you try this simple and delicious recipe, you’ll be leaving those boxed mixes at the store.
