Shoo Fly Cupcakes

Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by April Schaeffer. She didn't specify the amount the recipe yielded. So, I am guessing.

These are nice brown sugar cupcakes.I made few changes, used butter, added raisins and cinamon. Next time I will use orange juice instead of water and a little orange peel.They have a nice texture but need a flavor twist.I made half recipe and got 10 cupcakes. They are better cold than warm. thanks for sharing.I really like church cookbooks.
