– 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
– 2 teaspoons baking powder
– ½ teaspoon baking soda
– ½ teaspoon of salt
– ½ cup of milk

Directions / Instructions

Step 1

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two 12 cup muffin pans with paper baking cups. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl until evenly blended; set aside.

Step 2

Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in colour. Add the room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the milk mixture, mixing until just incorporated.

Step 3

Divide the cake batter into four separate bowls. Add a few drops of food colouring into one bowl of batter and stir; add more food colouring, if necessary, to reach the desired shade. Repeat with the remaining colours and bowls of batter.

Step 4

Using a different spoon for each colour batter, spoon a small spoonful of each colour into the cupcake liners, until 1/2 to 3/4 full. Do not mix the batter once it is in the cupcake liner. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes clean, about 15 to 20 minutes.
