15g vanilla

Grab you mixing bowl and mix together the salt, baking powder, and flour.

Beat your butter up with an electric mixer on high for 2 minutes- So it looks nice and fluffly. Then add in the sugar and beat with the mixer until combined. Continue to beat and add the eggs and vanilla.

Add part of the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Then add some of the full cream milk. Set yhe mixer on low and continue to mix. Continue alternating like this until all of the milk and flour mixture have been added. Mix well.

Pour into cupcake pans, filling to about halfway.
