Queen Cakes

I have very fond memories of queen cakes growing up back home.It was a distinct bright yellow cake, not too sweet with a fluffy texture. I have been trying to replicate them for a little while and finally got a thumbs upfrommy biggest critique a.k.a my husband Sydney

Queen Cakes
Preheat oven to 150C fan/170C conventional. Prepare muffin pan with liners
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and mix well.
Add vanilla extract (if using egg yellow colour add at this stage)
Stir in flour alternating with the milk. Do not over mix as you will end up with tough cakes
Spoon into prepared tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Tops should be lightly golden and a skewer inserted into the centre should comeout clean
