Preheat your oven to 350°F/175°C and line a cupcake or muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients, flour, salt and baking powder.
In the bowl of your food processor, place the butter and whisk at medium speed for 2 minutes.
Then stir in the sugar and continue mixing for another 3 minutes or so, until a frothy cream is obtained.
Decrease the speed and add the vanilla extract, then the eggs one by one, stir after each addition, until the mixture is homogeneous.
Then add the dry ingredients and milk alternately and mix until you get a smooth and homogeneous cake dough.
Pour this preparation in your cupcake boxes, fill with dough to ¾ because they will swell during baking.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes and let cool slightly before removing from the oven.
