Somehow, the word ‘vanilla’ has been misused in the English language as an expression that means plain or ordinary, but ask any cake lover and they will swear by the versatility of vanilla!

Indeed, be it a sponge or a cupcake, the vanilla flavoured one is the most exciting and useful of all, because its nice soothing taste and mouth-feel complement any flavour beautifully.

This Vanilla Cupcake is testimony of this fact. These cupcakes are really tasty and easy to make. They just melt in the mouth, and play host effectively to any type of icing or butter cream. Let your imagination run wild, and decorate these amazing cupcakes in your favourite way.

I''m lactose intolerant. I use lactose free milk. But not sure what to substitute milk powder in this recipe with. Can we substitute milk powder with anything else in this recipe?
