You will need:
1 cup (200 g) white sugar
1/2 cup (120 g) butter
2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla extract
1 1/2 (180 g) cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp (8 ml) baking powder
1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.
I made cupcakes. I used an extra large muffin pan.
Once they were finished baking I set them on a tray in the freezer for a hour. They did stick a bit in the pan as you can see in the photo but not to worry. I can show you how mistakes don't matter and anything can be fixed with icing.
You can see my cakes are crumbly and parts of them stuck to the muffin tins. Don't worry, it happens. Ice them when they are cold, not frozen.
If you ice a cake while it is frozen solid when is defrosts, it will expand causing your cake to crack.
