      I used this recipe to make cupcakes, following the recipe with one exception - I used plain yogurt instead of buttermilk. I have seen that given as an acceptable substitute, but it is a substitute, and may have made the cake batter a little looser. I say this because the cupcakes sort of drooped off to one side, rather than rising into a nicely shaped dome. The fan on my oven may have had something to do with this, too, but I don't have the problem when I make muffins. The flavor of the cake is reasonable, in my opinion, but not very rich. I think an icing would make it nicer. The recipe itself, is simple, but could perhaps include a few more details, such as to what consistency the liquid should be beaten, or what size pans would be appropriate. If I were giving stars for the cake I made, I would say 4 stars, but I will leave stars off because of my substitution. Thank you for taking the time to post this recipe and giving me the experience of trying it.
