This is the most delicious recipe ever !!! I will keep on baking this, the only change I made was using cake flour, it makes the cupcakes very fluffy, and the sour cream makes them moist this is delicious !!! I will never change this recipe for another one !!! Thanks !!

I made these cupcakes for my Grandson's 2nd birthday party...the adult crowd raved about the cupcakes. I find sour cream or buttermilk makes a moist cupcake/cake.

I love this recipe!! It has great flavor. I use a chocolate cream cheese frosting. I Half the recipe because 24 is to many cupcakes for us.
