VANILLA CUPCAKES:

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 ¼ tsp salt
1 ¼ cup whole milk
¼ cup plus 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 ¾ cups sugar
3 eggs

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two 12-cup baking tins with cupcake liners.

Whisk together the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, combine the milk, heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract. Set aside.

Using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy for about one minute.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each egg until incorporated.

Gently add 1/3 of the flour mixture. Then add 1/2 the milk mixture. Add the dry ingredients in 3 additions, and the milk mixture in 2. Scrape the sides of the bowl.

Fill the prepared cupcake liners with batter ¾ of the way full. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cupcake comes out clean.

Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pans for about 5 minutes and then remove them to completely cool on a wire rack.
