Vanilla Cupcakes

I thought I’d share my go-to vanilla cupcake recipe with you, as well as highlight some of my other favourite cupcake recipes. Although I’ve already posted a vanilla cupcake recipe, that one uses butter and my preference is to use oil in cupcakes because it makes them lighter. Cupcakes are so easy to make, and they are a delicious way to keep yourself or your kids occupied if you’re still self-isolating!
