This is the home of hundreds of cupcake recipes! If you are looking for a place to start, try the best vanilla cupcake or the best chocolate cupcake! Both of these recipes have been test baked by bakers around the world and are used at bakeries worldwide. All of my cupcake recipes are from scratch as I am a huge believer in from-scratch baking. If you’ve never baked from scratch, give it a try!
People often ask, “Can you use cupcake recipes to make a cake?” Yes, you can – just increase the baking time! Look at my ultimate vanilla cake recipe to see how this works. You can also use a cake recipe to make cupcakes – just be sure to cut down the baking time. Most cupcake recipes bake for around 20 minutes.
Many of my cupcake recipes have frosting recipes in the same post. But, you can always switch and use a different frosting recipe. My vanilla buttercream frosting and my chocolate cream cheese frosting are my two favorite frosting recipes.
Cupcakes are called fairy cakes in many parts of the world so these cupcake recipes double as fairy cake recipes!
Even if the recipe you find doesn’t have a filling, you can fill any cupcake by using a paring knife to cut a small hole in the cooled cupcake, filling it, replacing the small piece of cupcake that you removed, and topping with frosting!
