  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with 8 cupcake liners.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg and olive oil, vanilla extract, vanilla paste, and sugar.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together milk and lemon juice. Let sit.
  • Sift flours into a medium bowl. Then add baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk.
  • Add milk mixture to egg mixture, and stir. Then add this liquid to the dry ingredients, and stir using a spatula, until no flour streaks remain.
  • Fill each cupcake liner a little over half full, with batter.
  • Bake for 17-18 minutes, until golden and toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let fully cool.
  • Frost as you'd like. I use this this simple vanilla buttercream recipe. In above paragraphs, I give details on how to do the star technique. Store, covered, for 2 days.
