Ingredients:  
1 1/2 cup self- rising flour
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 c. sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line two 12-cup muffin tins with cupcake papers. In a small bowl, combine the flours. Set aside. In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter until smooth. Add the sugar gradually and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the dry ingredients in three parts, alternating with the milk and vanilla. With each addition, beat until the ingredients are incorporated but do not overbeat. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the batter in the bowl to make sure the ingredients are well blended. Carefully spook the batter into the cupcake liners, filling them about three-quarters full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean.

Cook the cupcakes in the tins for 15 minutes. Remove from the tins and cook completely on a wire rack before icing. Makes about 2 dozen cupcakes.

Note: If you would like to make a layer cake instead of cupcakes, divide the batter between two 9-inch round cake pans and bake the layers for 30-40 minutes.
