Preheat oven to 350°F and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
Beat butter in a large bowl for 30 seconds. Slowly add sugar, beating until mixture is light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed.
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat in vanilla.
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
Add 1/3 to butter mixture, beating on low speed just until combined. Beat in 1/2 of the Walnutmilk. Repeat steps ending with the remaining flour mixture, beating just until dry ingredients are incorporated.
