I made these today for Easter. I followed the directions exactly and to me they were a little dry. They almost had the consistency of cornbread. I was going to give them to the neighbors but couldn't bring myself to do it. Sorry.

These were great! I always cheat and use a box recipe. They were so moist and easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

These are VERY good! I love the fact that I can make the white cake from scratch! I used 2 1/4 cups of flour instead of 2 3/4. This recipe made 16 cupcakes. Great recipe! I added my photo!
