These tasted good but were not what I expected. They tasted more like a muffin to me rather than a cupcake - kind of heavy and dense not light like a cake. The kids really enjoyed them though and the recipe was so simple to put together I would use it again in a pinch as I tend to avoid cake mixes. The grown-ups liked them, the kids loved them, and the recipe was so simple, I averaged this out to 4 stars. Thank you for sharing.
