so i have been doctoring up a boxed cake mix to make my cupcakes i add more oil and some sour cream to give it a kick to most of my cupcakes or i will add buttermilk to give it a more fluffy texture. i decided that i want to make my cupcakes from scratch as i make all of my buttercreams from scratch. i found this easy cupcake recipe and thought OK i can do this. well the cupcakes came out of the oven look like a pale vanilla flavored biscuit :( cant figure out what i did wrong
this was the recipe and the directions
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional) ( i use Madagascar Bourbon vanilla)
preheat oven to 375f or 170c; line muffin cups with papers.
cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy. beat in eggs one at a time.
add flour (mixed with baking powder and salt) alternating with milk beat well; stir in vanilla.
divide evenly among pans and bake for 20 minutes. let cool in pans
so i mixed the butter and sugar in my kitchen aide until it was creamy at first it was like soft crumbly texture not sure if i should have stopped mixing there then i added in the eggs flour bp and salt mixture alternating with milk until it was combined added in vanilla and then i went to go start to scoop into cupcake liners and noticed that the butter was still stuck to the bowl so i went and mixed some more ( i think i over mixed it. i poured into liners but the batter was on the thicker side and not so runny i baked for 20 minutes i take them out and its like a pale biscuit i go to open one up and i see like bubble holes inside the cupcake and it tastes like a sweet biscuit
can someone help me does anyone have a full prof easy cupcake batter i can make from scratch.
