These Thermomix Vanilla Cupcakes are so quick and easy to make, are moist and delicious and topped with amazing vanilla buttercream frosting.
Everyone needs an easy vanilla cupcake recipe up their sleeve and the Thermomix makes this one even easier.
I love how moist and fluffy these cupcakes are. You can add any frosting you like, but the vanilla buttercream works perfectly here. Add some color and sprinkles for fun!
Ingredients for vanilla cupcakes
This Thermomix cupcake recipe uses the following ingredients:
- Caster Sugar (you can substitute with granulated sugar if that is all you have)
- Sour cream (the sour cream helps make these into really fluffy vanilla cupcakes)
- Vanilla extract
- Plain flour
- Baking powder
How to make vanilla cupcakes in the Thermomix
Making homemade vanilla cupcakes in the Thermomix could not be easier! There are only two steps:
- Cream together the butter and sugar for 30 seconds.
- Add all the other ingredients and mix for another 30 seconds.
And you have your cupcake batter!
Some tips for making these simple vanilla cupcakes:
- Because making the cupcakes is so quick, make sure you have your oven pre-heated and your muffin tin prepared before you start
- Try to have your eggs, sour cream and butter at room temperature before you start
- Use a cookie or ice cream scoop to divide the mixture into your muffin tin - this makes it quicker and easier to make them equal
- Only fill the muffin cases ⅔ full. You don't want them to dome too much when cooking as it will be easier to frost flatter cupcakes.
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting in the Thermomix
Making buttercream frosting in the Thermomix is super easy too! You can read our full recipe and tips for Thermomix Buttercream here.
I like to start by whizzing up the icing sugar to make sure there are no lumps in it - I do this for 10 seconds at speed 9, then set it aside.
Next cream the butter to make it nice and soft (30 seconds).
Then add the sugar back in with the milk and vanilla extract, plus a few drops of food coloring if you want. And mix it all together for another 30 seconds. Job done.
To make icing cupcakes easy, I highly recommend using a LARGE icing tip. I use the Wilton 1M (used in the pictures on this page) or the Wilton 1A (used for these Carrot Cupcakes), together with a piping bag.
