These were good, if a little plain. I made them and ran out of the house, so when I came back, I 'fixed' them up a little. They make a great base. I added some black cherry jam, and topped with a cream cheese frosting. I fixed one for DS by frosting with peanut butter and topping with pieces of a Hershey's bar. He just loved it! Thanks for sharing, Deantini.

These are sweet vanilla cupcakes! They have such a nice light texture and baked perfectly in 25 minutes in my oven. I enjoyed the overall flavor of these gems and so did the family at our Easter gathering. I did reduce the sugar by a 1/2 cup due to some dietary needs and because I was going to frost all of these for the party. Very tasty and simple to make! Thanks for a keeper!

These little morsels are very fluffy and soft. The dough is easy to work with and they bake up perfectly. The vanilla aroma is sublte, but very nice. Like Iceland I reduced the sugar quite a bit and the cupcakes were still sweet and yummy. All in all a very nice cupcake, but somehow not exactly what I was hoping for. Even though I already decreased the butter to just a little over 1/3 cup, these still had a very buttery taste. I dont quite know why, but they seemed greasy. I dont like too much of a butter taste, so unfortunately I didnt like these as much as I had thought I would. Maybe next time Ill reduce the butter even further and use applesauce in its place to add a fruity note or sub in vanilla yoghurt or something. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us, Deantini! Made and reviewed for Went To The Market Tag Game September 09.
