1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease muffin tin or line with paper muffin cups.
In a medium bowl, beat together softened butter and sugar until creamy. Add one egg at a time, mixing well.
Stir in baking powder, salt, and vanilla.
Incorporate flour and milk alternately, stirring just enough to combine making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
