Okay…I’m going to let you in on a secret. I will often use a box cake mix when I need to whip up a quick batch of cupcakes for one of my kid’s birthday parties or classroom celebrations. It’s easy and my kids are notorious for those last-minute bake sale requests. And truth be told, kids don’t generally care if it comes from a box. Heck, I don’t care that it comes from a box. These are truly the best easy vanilla cupcakes.

How To Make Easy Vanilla Cupcakes
I do, however, add a few additional ingredients to doctor the cake mix up a teensy bit. Goes from “yum” to “hot darn yum!” And honestly, these few extra steps take up no extra time. All you will need is some egg whites, Greek yogurt, almond milk, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil. So grab that box of white cake mix that I know you keep hidden in the back of your pantry (we all do), preheat the oven, and start mixing.
