The most basic and yet the most difficult to master. This is also a great recipe to start with if you want to branch off of the recipe and try new variations. Eat them with or without frosting!

Tips

- Some professional bakers claim that beating flour too much will result in a dense cake. To avoid this sift the flour first and don't beat the flour into the mix, fold it into the batter at the end.

- Make sure not to fill the baking cups too full, a good rule of thumb is 2/3 full.
