Blog Post #2: Vanilla Cupcakes and Lemonade

Posted on Updated on

Alright, so this post is going to be a recipe/party idea. I, don’t judge, got this brilliant idea from Bakery Story. Now if you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a virtual bakery game on my iPhone.

I always make them together because I just feel that the sweet vanilla cupcakes will compliment the slightly tart lemonade perfectly, and these two recipes (not mine) are just amazing for these flavors. So, I’ll just get right into it.

Vanilla Cupcakes (15-16)



1 & 1/4 cups cake flour

1 & 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

3/4 cups sugar

1 & 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 cups vegetable oil

1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 milk with 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice)


Preheat oven to 350*F.

In a medium bowl, add cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk and set aside.

In another bowl, add eggs and beat for 10-20 seconds with an electric mixer. Add sugar and beat on medium for 30 seconds. Add vanilla and oil and beat.

While mixing on low, add half of the flour mixture, half of the milk, then the other half of the flour, and the other half of the milk. Beat until combined.

Pour (thin) batter into muffin pan with liners. Fill about 2/3 full.

Bake for 12-14 minutes. Cool and frost!

Lemonade (6)



3/4 cup sugar

1 cup water (separate)

1 cup lemon juice

3-4 cups cold water

4-6 lemons


Heat sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan until the sugar has dissolved.

Use a juicer to extract juice from the lemons.

Add the juice and sugar water and water into a pitcher. (Adjustable to your own taste).

Okay, so these are the recipes. I hope you try them out and like them. Let me know! 🙂
