Funfetti Cake

It took me a couple tries to find a funfetti recipe I actually liked... after several mediocre attempts I resort to a tried and true recipe - Ultimate Vanilla Cake. Thankfully just in time to make cupcakes for Tanya's birthday!

I frosted the cupcakes with Meringue Buttercream Frosting and lots more sprinkles!

Makes two dozen


1 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1teaspoon almond extract
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sprinkles


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare two cupcake pans with paper liners.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the sugar and mix until well combined. Add the butter and mix on medium speed until the very fine crumb texture, about three minutes. Add the eggs, sour cream, oil and extracts. Beat on medium speed until just combined. Slowly add the milk and mix on low speed until just combined. 

Remove the bowl from the stand mixer. Add the sprinkles and gently fold into the batter. Fill prepared cupcake liners just over half full. Work quickly, trying not to stir the batter to prevent the colour from the sprinkles from bleeding.

Bake for 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
