Tiffany Blue Triple Vanilla Cupcakes

Like the timeless appeal of an iconic blue box, vanilla cupcakes are both classic and always in style. Today, I’ve taken the true-blue vanilla cupcake and given it an injection of elevated vanilla flavor. With pure vanilla extract, vanilla bean, and vanilla powder, these cupcakes hit all the right notes.

Triple Vanilla Cupcakes

Ingredients

    For the cupcake:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (two sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 whole vanilla bean
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • For the frosting:
  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, softened (NOT melted)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla powder (I used India Tree brand -- expensive, but worth it!)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 whole vanilla bean
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tbsp heavy cream (or more for desired consistency)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan with liners.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing in between each. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and extract and mix until just combined. Don’t over mix!
  • Slice vanilla bean length-wise, scrape seeds into batter and mix until there aren't visible clumps of vanilla bean. Add milk and vegetable oil, mix until just combined
  • Spoon batter into cupcake liners and fill each 2/3 full and bake for 16-18 minutes until slightly golden, then allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • While cupcakes are cooling, add butter for icing in a medium mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy with handheld beaters. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time, mixing well between each. Add vanilla bean, vanilla extract, and vanilla powder and mix. Slowly add heavy cream until desired consistency is reached.
  • Use a piping bag to pipe icing onto cool cupcakes, top with a sprinkle of vanilla powder and raw sugar. Note: For the Tiffany blue color, use several drops blue and green food coloring.
