These were a hugh hit with my family. I made them for my son's b-day and he loved them. They were easy to make and will be made again. Thanks Mystergirl.
i liked them without frosting. The tops are a little crunchy and the inside was just so moist. I did one batch with the cream cheese on the top of the batter like the instructions say, but did not like it. i then filled half my cupcake pan, then cream cheese and finished filling my pan. this was a lot better when you bite into it. Will try topping with a cream cheese frosting next time for the wife.
We really enjoyed these. They were esy to make and we loved the center. I got 24 cupcakes from this. Next time I will probably make more filling as my kids said they wish the cupcakes had mroe of it. I did not frost htese.....it wasn't needed. Thanks.
