Simple vanilla cupcakes recipe with light vanilla cream. Sometimes unexpected visitors come by and it would be nice to serve up something sweet. While the coffee is brewing, it is enough time to put all the ingredients into the mixer and mix. It takes no more than 10 minutes and the effect is amazing. You do not necessarily need to decorate them with cream, because they also taste delicious without anything.
