I was pretty disappointed with this recipe. The cupcakes came out a bit dry and not very flavorful. I made sure I checked on the cupcakes regularly so I am sure I did not over bake. I would cut down on some of the dry ingredients or use buttermilk instead.

This turned out ok for me. I loved how the top of the cupcakes hardened a bit while cooking and tasted like sugar cookies. The inside, however, was a bit dry and lacking in flavor even though I doubled the vanilla. I would recommend stirring in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon so as not to overmix.

Incredible. Followed directions precisely and they were lovely: moist and full of flavor - these are now at the top of the cupcake recipe heap for me. Thanks Magnolia!

Oh my goodness these are fantastic! I have made 2 batches and they have been gobbled up. I have also tried chocolate buttercream on there which is yum. But the plain vanilla frosting is the best. Thanks so much they are so easy to make. Love them

I added 1 cup of strawberry jam and little slices of fresh strawberry (decreasing the sugar by 1 cup). Mmmmm!

I don't know what happened with mine. I made these with my nieces one weekend. The cupcakes came out dense and extremely sweet for the buttercream frosting suggested. the girls wouldn't even eat a whole cupcake. If anyone has any ideas on what I did wrong please let me know.

I do see how someone might consider these dry, but they are also very delicate and have a great flavor. When iced, its almost impossible to discern. They are great for both grown ups who want a good taste, and kids who are probably just going to eat tye frosting and cruble the cupcake anyway. Thanks!
