Perfect Yellow Cupcakes - Easy to make cupcakes that come out perfect every time! Recipe includes gluten free option.

Are you looking for the perfect yellow cupcake recipe that yields moist, delicious, and easy to frost cupcakes? This.is.it!

Perfect Yellow Cupcake- easy to make cupcakes that come out perfect every time! Recipe includes gluten free option.

My youngest turns four this week, and I can’t help but wonder, where did the time go? How did it pass so fast? When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday, he said he wanted to frost cupcakes with his siblings. So, today I invite you to check out this easy video where my “baby” and I make yellow cupcakes together.

For today’s recipe, I’ve partnered with Bob’s Red Mill to make these cupcakes from my cookbook, The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet. In this video, I answered the most frequently asked questions regarding which flour to use when baking to yield fluffy and soft cakes and cupcakes.

I’m a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten-Free Baking Flour when I want to make a recipe that can accommodate my other son’s gluten-free needs. I love that they have a dedicated 100% gluten-free facility, so it’s one brand that I often recommend my readers use. Plus, their baking flour makes amazing cupcakes, cakes, pancakes, waffles, and cookies, for example.

When baking with regular flour, I typically use their all-purpose flour for moist baked goods. I know some of you want to make recipes with whole-wheat flour, so for baking, you want to look for “whole-wheat pastry flour” on the label. The “pastry” means that it comes from white whole-wheat and when milled it’s a much finer and softer flour than regular whole-wheat flour. Regular whole-wheat flour comes from red whole-wheat kernels and will yield dense baked goods (especially cakes).

I am often asked by my readers how do I adapt my “original” recipes to suit my gluten-free needs (both my middle son and I don’t eat gluten). My answer is always the same: find a great all-purpose gluten-free flour and stick to that one brand. The more you use it, the more you’ll become familiar with any modifications you might need to make in your recipes.

So these cupcakes. They are the perfect yellow cupcake recipe. I prefer the rich, buttery taste in my baked cakes and cupcakes rather than oil. With this recipe, you’ll never have to buy boxed yellow cake again. I modified this recipe so it would come together in a single bowl, as opposed to a two bowl wonder. The fewer dirty dishes in the sink, the better.

Of course, my kids love to frost anything, and since I’m a recipe purist at heart, I chose an easy buttercream frosting for the recipe.

Whether you are celebrating a birthday or baking delicious cupcakes for your family and friends, I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my children have.

Perfectly Birthday Yellow Cupcakes

I love this recipe because it uses ingredients readily available in your pantry and comes together quicker than you can go to the store to purchase a box of cake mix! This recipe is from Laura Fuentes’ book, The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet.

  • Author: Laura Fuentes
  • Yield: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (188 g) Bob’s Red Mill Unbleached White All-Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (7 g) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 g) salt
  • 8 tablespoons (112 g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (25 ml) vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position. Preheat oven to 350° F (180°C). Line standard cupcake pan with paper liners.
  2. In the bowl of your standing mixer, add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter, Greek yogurt, eggs, and vanilla; beat at medium speed until smooth, about 30 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl with rubber a spatula and mix by hand until smooth and no flour pockets remain.
  3. Divide thick batter evenly among cups (about 2/3 full) of prepared tin. Bake until cupcake tops are pale gold and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 22 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow the cupcakes to cool down for five minutes before removing them from the pan and transferring to a wire rack. Cool cupcakes to room temperature before frosting.

Notes

Kitchen Note
The batter will be thick, so I found that the easiest way to scoop into liners is by using an ice cream scoop.
Make these gluten-free by using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. They come out wonderfully!

    I like baking cakes/cupcakes for my kids’ birthdays and also quick breads. My 16 year old has followed my joy of baking and does her own baking too, especially chocolate chip cookies. Recently she has been experimenting with several of Bob Red Mill’s flours and the results have been delicious!

I JUST baked 5 dozen cupcakes for my twins’ birthday last week! I wish I’d had your recipes; will try for my next son’s Bday in March. I did enjoy frosting the cupcakes with my littles and plan to make it a tradition (goodbye store cakes!).

I love baking just about anything… My favorite would have to be pumpkin bread… Or yeast bread… Or cookies for my kiddos…. It’s too hard to choose! I really do love baking and cooking for my family and friends.

I love to bake cookies; whether its the homemade soft chewy chocolate chip cookies or the simple sugar cookies – my family can’t have enough of them.
I have been a fan of Bob’s Red Mill products. their Almond meal is a staple in my house.

Hii! My oldest son is turning four next month and has requested “regular” cupcakes since he’s not a fan of chocolate, and I am so excited to try this recipe! I haven’t baked with Bob’s before but am certainly going to go out and buy some after hearing your positive review. I usually just use Gold Medal flour, and we love to bake muffins and cookies around here! Thanks so much for making my life easier with these simple and delicious recipes!

HI, As his retirement approached, I told my husband of over 40 years, “The HE or SHE who cooks never does the dishes!” George is fast becoming a good cook and a baker of wonderful desserts and treats.

We use most of our flour for baking cinnamon raisin bread and cooking different flavored pancakes! We hope to bake more sugar cookies; if I don’t, my boys may stage a revolt! Lol. Thank you for this great recipe and thank you for the opportunity for Bob’s products! I absolutely love and trust this company. I had no idea until recently the variety of products that they have!

PS – totally trying this recipe for a birthday snack day next week!! 🙂

Amanda - January 22, 2016 Reply

My favorite thing to bake is whatever is requested! A family favorite is oatmeal cookie bars, followed closely by zucchini bread in the summer. When I bake whole wheat bread for myself, I use a blend of whole wheat and BRM spelt flours.

Emily - January 22, 2016 Reply

Seems like a lot of sugar-especially in the frosting! I usually sub in applesauce or banana to replace some of the sugar, plus moisten it up. I might give this a try with 1/2 the sugar next month when my son turns 3!

Hi Laura!!! I hope you are well! I just came across your website today! It looks AMAZING!!! I have recently become more of a baker because I can’t stand buying the store bought boxed items that have terrible ingredients! I make pancakes maybe too much, cookies, cakes and cupcakes (for birthdays), zucchini bread, etc, etc . . .I really LOVE Bob’s Red Mill Unbleached white flour. When I use that flour compared to others- my pancakes seem to be so much more fluffy and the texture is better if that makes sense! Thanks for this recipe- I am definitely trying this for my next munchkins birthday! Bookmarked! 🙂

Haha, Im just clearing out my inbox and saw your recent email with the cupcakes post. Funny thing, I also spent Saturday evening going through your book, looking for ideas for lunches this week and found the cupcake recipe without realising that the same one was already in my inbox. We made these today with my twins (who will also be 4 in 3 weeks) and they loved them. I am a careful Weight Watcher and after checking the Smart Points values (10 SP for just a cupcake and 20 SP for just frosting), I decided to just have a bite (without the frosting) – it was yummy :))

I really like your recipes, even though some ingredients are difficult to find in UK – the whipped cream cheese has only just been introduced. I also haven’t managed to convince the twins to like nut butters and cream cheese yet, we could try much more then but we’re working on it.

Best wishes!

We mostly bake chocolate chip cookies around here, but I love a good cake recipe 🙂 can’t wait to try yours!

Kari Hughes - January 24, 2016 Reply

I’m enjoying experimenting with Bob’s Red Mill garbanzo bean flour. I add it to muffins and quick breads to add a protein punch to nut/peanut free snacks that I can send to school. So far my favorite item to add it to has been banana bread. I’ve had people tell me my banana bread is some of the best they’ve ever tasted; they were shocked when they learned there was garbanzo bean flour in it!

Ben - January 24, 2016 Reply

My wife and kids always request baked chocolate chip oatmeal for breakfast, and it’s one of my faves because it’s so easy to pull together. My wife went GF in 2015 and I had a moment of panic about how I would continue to make it for her specific needs. Through a mix of Bob’s Red Mill GF flour, oats, and flax seed, It’s as easy as it ever was and fits the new dietary needs. Happy birthday to your little man, Laura!

Thx for the yummy cupcake recipe! I love to make muffins to serve for breakfast, in kids’ lunches, or even for “breakfast for dinner”, and I can sneak in fruits and/or veggies.

Last month I decided I wanted to become a better baker, so I’ve been trying new things almost weekly. Last night I made maple pecan squares which are amazing. I also love making cookies and cupcakes with my oldest (he’s 3 1/2). My middle little one (he’s 19 months) is starting to show interest in what I do in the kitchen and “helped” me make cookie bars last week. It was messy but fun!

Hi Laura!
I love to bake most anything, but lately, it’s been three things: breadsticks (I found a recipe on Pinterest and I’m OBSESSED), cookies, and berry muffins– blueberry or triple berry vegan ones, to be precise. I realize it’s like having cake for breakfast, but as long as it’s called a muffin, I figure I’m good. My fave Bob’s product is the meusli! I love to soak in almond milk. If might be GF– I recommend it if it is. Mmmm.

    I LOVE their muesli too! I used to eat something very similar to it when I lived in Germany and that’s the closest thing I’ve found in the US.

I also like to use Bob’s Red Mill Unbleached White All-Purpose Flour and whole wheat flour.
Since having the kids, I have dedicated time to making as many foods as we can, especially those we enjoy most to avoid preservatives, but also to teach my kids as my grandmother (baker extraordinaire) used to. We bake our bread for lunches weekly, make homemade pizza dough, bake triple ginger cookies with BRM whole wheat flour, pancakes, and apple muffins for breakfast… Just to name a few most frequent and favorite items. They’re pretty fast the more you make them and the kids “help” most of the time! We will try your cupcakes too… So simple! To make vanilla into chocolate cupcakes, I usually make a dark chocolate ganache and just fold into the recipe.

Thanks so much for the recipe, Laura. I just bought some Bob’s Red Mill 1-1 flour to try for my gluten free baking. I usually use King Arthur Flours gf flour and mix with good success, but wanted to try Bob’s too. Their arrowroot powder is the best by far. I usually eat paleo, but just have to have some gf baked goods once in a while!

Jennifer - January 25, 2016 Reply

Baking is very therapeutic for me. My favorite things to bake are cookies, cupcakes and brownies, mostly because they’re easy to pack in my kids lunches! Although they can be quite dangerous for me to have in the house because they’re easy to grab! I mostly bake with almond or coconut flour and BRM arrowroot or tapioca flour for sure. I do use all purpose on occasion or a gluten free blend. I will definitely need to try BRM. Thanks for this recipe. These cupcakes look easy and delicious!

Jody - January 25, 2016 Reply

Muffins are my favorite thing to bake! So easy for the kids to grab for breakfast and go. Top three: bran, banana chocolate chip, and poppy seed. My favorite Bob’s Red Mill product is the unsweetened flake coconut I use in my granola.

How would you make this dairy free? He eats a soy plain yogurt. Would that work? And applesauce for the eggs? Or would you use the flax seed replacement? I’m curious what your thoughts are on this. Thanks!

    Laura Fuentes - January 25, 2016 Reply

    to make these dairy free, you can replace the yogurt with canned coconut milk and the butter with palm shortening. I have made these with flax eggs and they aren’t as fluffy. I hope this helps!

Hello, Thank god I found you 🙂 I am new to gluten,dairy and egg free since my son is allergic to those its hard but now all I do is search your website. For his B-day I baked him the chocolate cake I found in your recipes I used the Bob’s Res Mill gluten free all purpose flour.
Can’t wait to try this!!!

My favorite thing to bake is birthday cakes for my kids. My Grandmother made Cakes growing up as a side business and I gave many memories of digging through her cake pans deciding what cake I was having her make me for my birthday that year. She’s since passed but I try so hard to make sure my 3 kids have the joy I had growing up with a special cake made just for them!

I love to bake but ever since going gluten free I have struggled with recipes. I am so glad I found Bob’s GF mix! My daughter and I are big cookie fans and I have been able to make our favorite chocolate chip cookies with the GF mix – and we both love them!

My children and I love making gluten/dairy free chocolate chip, peanut butter and oatmeal cookies together. I generally use King Arthur or Bob’s Red Mill.

I like to bake breakfast goodies, like muffins and scones. I like to substitute 1/2 of all purpose flour in my recipes for Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat pastry flour– it makes me feel like I’ve just made it a tad healthier without sacrificing taste or texture.

We love Bob’s Red Mill for GF products and we live about 45 minutes away from the store. :o) We love their GF muesli and the GF muffin mix because I can mix anything into them (bananas and coconut!) when I’m barely awake on a Saturday morning.

I love Bob’s! I am always looking for ways to incorporate protein in my son’s diet, so I usually replace half the sugar with Bob’s whey to reduce the sugar content and improve the protein content. My current favorite thing to bake is steel cut oat muffins with a variety of mix-ins, and I use Bob’s quick cook steel cut oats for the muffins. I love to bake, especially in winter, because it warms the house and makes it smell so good!

Do pancakes count? They’re not exactly baked but… still some of the most delicious things on this planet. I love finding different pancake recipes and making them with different flours! I also love to make French macaroons. It’s a recipe you definitely have to practice, but they end up so nice and you don’t have to pay a fortune like you do for pre-made ones. The almond flour in them gives their nice light texture so that’s a staple in my house. And, they’re gluten free!

Hi Laura,
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! We just recently had to go gluten free as a family due to some health issues and I was looking for a company who makes gluten free flour. My knowledge about the topic is still minimal, but I’m learning! 🙂

Thanks again for sharing your experiences! It helps this mom make treats everyone in the family can enjoy!

Hmmm, my favorite thing to bake. I love to bake breads, and I usually use a blend of King Arthur all-purpose flour and an additional flour. My favorite Bob’s Red Mill flours are the almond flour (great for coating chicken or adding texture and flavor to cookies) and the arrowroot flour (makes incredible sweet potato gnocchi). Love that brand!

I have tried so many Bob’s Red Mill products (tapioca and other flours, flaxseed, etc.) and have yet to find one I didn’t love!

I love the whole wheat flour for baking muffins, scones, breads, and pizza crusts. If its just me and the family, I find it works in almost any recipe, and we’ve gotten used to the textural differences between all whole wheat and white. When company comes, I break out the regular AP white flour. Of course, I also highly recommend Bob’s 10-grain cereal. My son thinks its tastes like Cream of Wheat, but what he doesn’t know is its so much healthier!

I love to bake breads and anything chocolate 😀 I make a grain-free chocolate cake with almond flour. I get Bob’s almond meal and grind it finer in my coffee grinder to get the cake to have a smooth texture. Right now, I’m drying sprouted wheat berries to make bread (I grind the old time consuming way with a stone mill) and will be adding some ground Bob’s Flax to it, too.

Oh my God it’s my birthday and the only thing I wanted my mom to go out and buy is Bob’s Sourghum flour! It is honestly the best flour I have ever tried! I use it to bake anything from breaded chicken breast strips to cakes and cookies! It has a mildly sweet flavor so it’s especially good when baking desserts! My favorite thing to bake with Bob’s sourghum flour is my secret “triple layer pound ice cream cake”. I use ingredients such as Bob’s sourghum flour and Bob’s ground flaxseed, chia seeds and banana to hold the cake together, ground carob powder and homemade almond milk to make the chocolate frosting, fresh vanilla bean and coconut to make the ice cream, and crumbled carob chips for s lovely chocolate chip taste!
I can go on and on but I have to get started baking with Bob’s great sourgham flour and flaxseed for my birthday party later! Yay!!!

P.s. For some reason it won’t let me rate your recipe but I give it 5 giant stars! Looks amazing! I have to try it! I’m thinking for my moms birthday on Feb.18th!

Those look amazing! I have been looking for something fun to make tomorrow when the big snow storm hits us. These would be perfect 🙂

My favorite thing to make is your Momables Morning Glory Muffins (no joke!) with Bob’s Gluten Free Flour… I literally make these almost every week. They have been one of the very few allergy friendly baked items that have worked out for me and I thank you so much!! My family has grown to appreciate them as well 🙂

We love making muffins at our house. Lots of help with my 6, 4 and 2 year old kids.

I love to bake bread – and with a family of 5 we go through a lot of it, so it is an almost-daily task for me!

While I have a cabinet full of an assorted variety of Bob’s Red Mill flours, my favorite item to make is buffalo cauliflower ‘wings’ using Bob’s Red Mill garbanzo flour – it’s the only one I’ll use – it makes the perfect batter every time!

My KIDS’ favorite thing for me to bake is my homemade pizza! Second to that is our butternut squash muffins and the surprise chocolate chip cookies that appear every once in a while!

I love Red Mill’s oatmeal! I use vanilla almond milk, brown sugar, and pecans and it tasted so much better than the prepackaged oatmeal with all the added sugars.

My little ones and I love to bake and they enjoy helping with muffins, breads, cupcakes and especially icing them.

I’ve been gluten free for almost 3 years and this has been the only brand I use. For pancakes breads etc. I just found. Their pizza crust and it’s the best. I’ve tried so many gluten free pizzas and they’ve all been eh but there’s is the best. My sons 5th bday is In April for maybe we’ll make these for his class. He is not gluten free but doesn’t notice a different if I give him a slice of gluten free bread or the pizza !

I love to make scones for my celiac grandmother who can’t see well enough to bake anymore. Of course my kids love when I bake cookies. 🙂

I received a bread machine last Christmas, and I love experimenting with different homemade breads. I’ve made the switch from regular all purpose flour to the whole wheat kind and I’m still learning how that makes a difference in things :0) My favorite switch so far has been for our weekly pizza nights. Adding some fresh parmesan and italian herbs into the dough makes it out of this world!

I’m definitely more of a baker than a cook! Cookies and muffins are my usual staples – mostly recipes found right here on this website! I just tried these Vanilla Classroom Cupcakes for my husband’s birthday last week, and my son is already asking for me to make them for his July birthday! The texture and flavor was amazing.

I looove baking cupcake and muffins! And brownies!

Yvonne - February 1, 2016 Reply

I found a great recipe from Food Network magazine for a mix and match quick bread. You can make it a banana bread, zucchini, carrot, etc. then you customize the add-ins: nuts, craisins, coconut. It freezes well and is nice to bring along to a party.

Rachel - February 1, 2016 Reply

Those cupcakes look like perfection! My favorite thing to bake is peanut butter brownies, I have used BRM products before but they are kind of hard to find in my area.

Dariela - February 1, 2016 Reply

I love to bake! But I don’t do it as often. My favorite thing to bake now-a-days are muffins or cupcakes with a twist, adding lots of nutrition like chia seeds, almond flour, hemp seeds, flax seeds and I want to try so many Bob’s Red Mill products!

Whitney Townley - February 1, 2016 Reply

This is a tough one! I just love to cook/bake period! I gonna have to generalize and say my favorite thing to bake is anything super yummy that is also healthy. I especially love to take an unhealthy recipe and turn it into a healthy one! I believe you can eat healthy without having to sacrifice flavor!! Have been loving your website!! It’s helped me sooo much with hubby and school lunches!!

Jennifer - February 1, 2016 Reply

We really enjoy making banana bread and brownies. There are so many different add-ins for banana bread – but chocolate chips/chunks are our favorite. There’s nothing quite like warm banana bread & chocolate!

Laurie - February 1, 2016 Reply

I like enjoy all sorts of baking, but homemade bread is something we always have on hand in the kitchen.

Joanne - February 1, 2016 Reply

I love to bake my family’s breads, rolls, muffins,pancakes and waffles. Store bought breads have so many questionable ingredients. Bob’s Red Mill has a huge variety of grains and baking ingredients.

Bead, chocolate cookies and raisin bran muffins are top 3 in our house! I recently switched to a gluten-free diet for health reasons and Bob’s Red Mill flours have been of great help. Amazing products.

my favorite thing to bake is vegan chocolate cake/cupcakes. It’s delish! and my daughters love that they can lick the bowl!

Katherine - February 1, 2016 Reply

I LOVE Bob’s Red Mill baking products- I know I’m baking with quality ingredients, and they have a wide variety of flours, etc.
My recent favorite is to make GF pumpkin muffins with the GF blend- so moist & ‘sneaks’ in a veggie. And another favorite is ‘Magic’ cake recipe from Bob’s Red Mill using their almond and coconut flours instead of ‘regular’ flour. It is the moistest, yummiest cake I have ever had!!! Top with coconut based whipped topping and bittersweet chocolate and it’s like Almond Joy, or drizzle lightly with lemon curd & top with berries. It’s great for GF or for just a break from carb flours.

I bake muffins all the time! I usually use King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour, but am open to trying other kinds. 🙂 I am looking forward to trying this cupcake recipe.

Almost anything I can add pumpkin too. The favorite of all is Pumpkin rolls. Love to see the grandkids smiles when they find out I made some.

I’ve never used Bob’s flour before, but I have eaten the morning cereal and it is delicious.

Can’t wait to try these, I’m a chocolate lover but a buttery vanilla flavor sounds enticing! Thanks!

I love using Bob’s Red Mill flour to make breakfast muffins for my boys. I make a bunch and freeze them so we always have them on hand.
