Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe Trial I

Using a recipe from Hearty Bakes this round as I was intrigued by the idea that it doesn't uses milk for this recipe. So here I am, using the 1-bowl method in this recipe. 
For this very first attempt, I wanna see the difference between using hand whisk for this recipe and a mixer so I am trying out the hand whisk first.
The flavour is an outburst of vanilla in butter cake, it's very flavorful. My son can't stop asking for more, but I think my gal doesn't like the overwhelming buttery taste and stopped at 1. Haha, difference preferences huh.
Anyway, I tried using my KA and both yields a same texure. Not really the texture I am looking for, but the taste is definetely very buttery.
