I had really bad problems. i think there was too muck sugar in the recipe. When we took them out of the oven, i noticed that it tasted too much like flour and sugar, and did not get enough of the chocolate flavor. The top also came out hard, as well as the cake. I added melted chocolate to the batter, but it still came out nasty. i would ask to change the recipe.

These cupcakes were great. We followed the recipe exactly, and didn't have any problems. We were able to make 16 nice sized cupcakes...which gave us some leftovers that got put into the freezer. They are keeping well (though 1/2 of those have already been eaten)! Wonderful way to make cupcakes from scratch! Thanks for the recipe!

Didn't get the chance to taste these but my friends LOVED them!! :) Brought them for Thanksgiving at a good friend's house! Used low-fat milk and cut down the sugar to 1 1/4 cup because I iced these with Marg's Butter Cream Icing (Buttercream Frosting)! Thanks Anme!

Yummy! Little Miss (DD) helped me make this for afternoon tea today for our visitors and it was so 'simple'. I halved the recipe and it made eight large muffins. I like the fact the fat contain was not very high so one of our visitors who was watching her diet was able to eat one. Thank you Anme

Followed the directions exactly, i was starting to question the amount of butter that went in, it wouldnt really cream with the sugar, so i just added the eggs and vanilla and then it all blended nicely. I filled mine to the papers rim because i like domed cupcakes - because of this i only got 14 cupcakes but that was more then enough for us anyways. I used a creamcheese/peanut butter frosting and they taste great. I had wanted to add in oreos in the frosting and cupcakes, but someone ate them lol but this really is a great basic cupcake recipe

Definitely too much sugar in the recipe! I made these the night before a party and was left hung out to dry because they turned out awful :( They were very hard and crispy on the top and too gooey on the inside. They also collapsed in the middle. I thought they were so gooey because they needed to be cooked longer, but the longer I cooked them the harder they got! Although they did not make good cupcakes they did taste good and were more like brownies consistency wise.
