These are the first homemade cupcakes I've ever made and they turned out perfect!! I left out the cinnamon and nuts and frosted them with cream cheese frosting and they were delicious! I made these for the guys at work and they couldn't get enough of them. I would recommend making these in a heartbeat!

I am a huge fan of Kittencal's recipes, but this one failed me. First off, calling them 'one bowl' is a little misleading. Technically, one bowl is correct, but you dirty two containers. I also found them to be very dry. I would reduce her suggested cooking time, checking them after 15 minutes. The chocolate buttercream icing that she suggested was the saving grace~ super yummy! I would refrigerate it for a few minutes before applying it to the cupcakes.

After having just made a batch of Kitten's one bowl vanilla cupcakes, I had high hopes for these. I was disappointed. These came out dry and bland. They taste more like an okay chocolate chip muffin than a cupcake.

These are delicious. I made them for DS's sleepover party. I used a nice chocolate frosting and they were a huge hit with the boys. Thank you for sharing with us. We all loved them and will make again.

Wow! I made these cupcakes last night and they were BY FAR the best I've ever had! The only mistake I made was adding chocolate chips to the batter. I found it to be too much, so next time I will leave them out. I made chocolate buttercream icing to ice them with and they were sooo yummy! Will definitely be adding to my "Favorite Recipes" cookbook! Thanks for sharing. :)

I thought these were just ok. Normally, I love kitten's recipes. I made the cupcakes exactly as the recipe instructs. The only thing that saved the cupcakes was my chocolate ganache icing. I think using oil instead of butter is part of the problem. Also, I definitely would add more coco powder next time.

really good alothough the cinnamon was a bit odd. I will make them again, just omitting the cinnamon
