Kids cooking doesn't get much better does it! :) So for our first ThermoFun KIDtastic Friday - there is nothing better than a classic - Thermomix Vanilla Cupcakes!
It is so wonderful to see kids taking ownership and feeling so proud of their cooking accomplishments. Age permitting the kids can bake these thermomix vanilla cupcakes from scratch or help you put the mixture in the cups or even help with the all important sprinkles on top! :)
This recipe was one of the first recipes that was part of the 2014 ThermoFun Recipe Club and it was a hit back then and to this day it's a hit in our house. My daughter Diana often makes these - not so much now she has finished high school - but they do remind me of her school days and "teaching" those life long skills.

Silly question...i am using the card/paper free standing cups but am unsure as to how full i fill them with batter so as they do not explode over the top while cooking. Half full?
Apologies for my delay Rebecca - yes just half fill them and see how you go! No doubt my reply is too late so I hope you enjoyed them! :)
I replaced the butter with coconut oil and just made a simple icing so that the lactose intolerant kinder kid could enjoy the cupcakes too. I also reduced the sugar to 200g.
Thanks so much Diana, great to know!
Made these for my sis and nieces bday which they celebrate on the same day, but piping the icing on means I needed 2 batches of icing. They always come out yummy!
Hi, Can you tell me how long to cook if using recipe to make as mini muffins?
Hi Jennie, at a guess I'd go for 15 mins and then check them. Enjoy! :)
My fav cupcake recipe today I made them green for St Pars day.
Oh that's a fabulous idea Jenny! Enjoy!
Perfect to make into a marbled birthday cake! Yum!
These work great gluten free!
I made these using a straight swap to gf self raising flour.
They came out fantastic ! You could not tell they were gf at all!
Thanks so much Darra for letting us know re the gluten free flour! That's awesome! :)
Our son made these gf and df (used Nuttlex instead of butter and Toffutti Better than cream cheese -plain). They turned out really well and were light and fluffy. Will definitely be using this recipe again.
Thanks Tara - great to know they are yummy GF and DF. :)
