Vanilla Cupcakes

  • cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 4 egg whites, room temperature
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract
  • cup whole milk, room temperature


  • ½ cup seedless raspberry jam

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract


Vanilla Cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup cupcake pan with paper baking cups.
  • In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar with an electric mixer or hand-held mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. 
  • Stir in the egg whites, one at a time, blending well after each one. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and vanilla just until mixed. Add milk as needed. You want the batter to be similar to a pancake batter consistency. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
  • Bake until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. 


  • Place jam into a piping bag fitted with a 230 tip.  Press tip into the baked and cooled cupcake at least half-way down and apply pressure to the piping bag. 
  • Slowly start to move tip up and out of the cupcake applying pressure the whole time. Repeat on all cupcakes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla.  Mix until creamy, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Place frosting into a piping bag fitted with a 1M tip. Pipe out cream cheese swirls over the cupcakes that have been filled with jam.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
