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.
Delicious!! Don't over stir the batter any you will have the best cupcake you've ever eaten
These cupcakes were great!! Very moist and delicious. I will definitely make them again. I did not try the icing I tried a different buttercream icing. But, try them there GREAT!!!!!!!
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 loved this recipe,basic ingredients very easy to follow recipe.every one loved them and didn't believe they were from scracth,they said it tastes like cake mix but without the box flavour
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!
