Vanilla Cupcakes, My favorite, your favorite, the never-ending recipe!

The simplest cupcakes ^^ that many people can't say no, and I think I won't have enough recipes of it. Because each time that I want to make it I try make it better (or awful, haha).

This time I try to make adaptation from the book:I like the texture of the cake when I made the Lemon Curd Mascarpone Cupcakes but I think I want to make it more tender ^^.
So I added more Crème Fraîche (my favorite ingredient, that I really want you to try it, you can use in instead of milk, yogurt, sour cream and whipping cream), and a bit of milk to make the batter more fluid, well luckily for me that the result is good, only a bit of them make the cake more tender. For the buttercream, I use Crème au beurre that made from 1 egg, because the taste is quite good and very easy to prepare when I don't want to think about what to do with the rest of the egg (both white or yolk), but you can use other butter cream that you like, choose from French Butter cream (made with yolk only), Swiss meringue Buttercream or Italian meringue Buttercream, and add a vanilla bean paste to make it more vanilla (or other flavors that you want to eat with this tender vanilla cupcake ^^).
I hope that you will like this recipe too, and well, I can't say it's the last recipe for vanilla cupcake in my blog, hehe.
