1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 °F
In a small bowl, combine the flours.
Set aside.
In a large bowl, on medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
Add the sugar gradually and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the dry ingredients in 3 parts, alternating with the liquids.
With each addition, beat until the ingredients are incorporated but do not over beat.
Scrape down the batter in the bowl to make sure the ingredients are well blended.
Carefully spoon the batter into the cupcake liners, filling them about 3/4 full.

Cool the cupcakes in tins for 15 minutes.
Remove from the tins and cool completely on a wire rack before icing.
