      I hate giving this a bad review, but this falls on me for not reading the reviews. Those that substituted margarine for the shortening had a different recipe turn out. Shortening makes them greasy and I could not get past that flavor. I even used butter flavored Crisco and I could still taste it. The other ingredients were great and I think if I substitute butter/margarine then this would be a hit, but I needed to review the recipe as written.

      My favorite chocolate cupcake recipe thus far!! I usually only make ½ a batch at a time, and use margarine instead of shortening. Thanks for sharing!!
