Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C) and prepare a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

Step 2

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl and set aside.

Step 3

Add the butter, sugar, oil and vanilla extract to a large mixer bowl and beat together until light in color and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Do not skimp on the creaming time.

Step 4

Now it’s time to add the eggs. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until mostly combined after each. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to be sure all ingredients are well incorporated.

Step 5

Add half of the dry ingredients to the batter and mix until mostly combined.

Step 6

Slowly add the milk and mix until well combined. The batter will look curdled, but that’s ok.

Step 7

Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until well combined and smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to be sure all ingredients are well incorporated. Do not over mix the batter.

Step 8

Fill the cupcake liners about 3/4 full and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 9

Remove cupcakes from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool.

Step 10

Add the butter to a large mixer bowl and beat until smooth.

Step 11

Carefully pour in about half of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth and well combined.

Step 12

Add the vanilla extract and 1-2 tablespoons of the water or milk and the salt to the frosting and mix until well combined.

Step 13

Add the remaining powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add additional milk or water as needed to get the right consistency.

Step 14

Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. I used Ateco tip 844.

Step 15

Cupcakes are best when stored well covered for 2-3 days.
