  2. Set out two 12-cup cupcake tins with cupcake liners.
  3. In a nice big mixing bowl, cream the butter until it is smooth.
  4. Add the sugar gradually and beat until the mixture is fluffy and light in colour.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each one. Also add the vanilla.
  6. Add the dry ingredients in three parts, alternating with the milk.
  7. Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners! Each one should be about 3/4 full.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes (or until a cake tester comes out clean).
