Add the butter in chunks, to the flour mix, then add 3/4 cup milk. Beat on low for 1 minute.
Add eggs, and the remaining milk.
Beat until smooth.
Pour the batter into approximately 24 muffin cups.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
Cool before icing them.
The cupcake recipe works great for a cake too. Just put the batter into 2 lightly buttered 8-inch baking pans, and bake for 35-40 minutes. I also line the bottom of my cake pans with a circle of wax paper. The cakes then just slide out.
