Very tasty, I swap out granulated sugar for confectioners which makes them light as air. However I always have to make a double batch (even with the granulated) does not make 12 full sized cupcakes. Tasty with some tweeks!
The batter was a little on the thick side so i added 1/2 cup milk...turned out perfect everyone loved them!!!!!
As a pro chef I didn't think this recipe was going to be good, I mixed it like a pie dough and it came out very thick. I added half & half to thin it out a little and it worked great. the only problem i had was i tripled this recipie and only got 15 cupcakes, I did make them a little bigger than usual. Also i had to bake them for almost 30 min at 350 in a convection oven. But in the end they turned out great
