Like the other reviewer, I found the batter way to dry as written. I could not get all the dry ingredients to incorporate. So I upped the FF sour cream to 1/2 cup and it barely came together. Is it possible an ingredient is missing from the recipe? But that being said-it was still delicious and moist and I will make it again with the additional sour cream. I also can not imagine it making 16 cupcakes unless they are incredibly small.

I love the upper midwest, where my husband and I have made our home. We raise our two beautiful children in a small town west of the Twin Cities. I am an engineer who has progressed to Stay At Home Mom and now just recently, Homeschooler. Never in a million years would I have expected THIS! Now, my focus has progressed from career-driven to family-driven. I love to cook, and I use my engineering degree in my cooking. I love to learn how to do things, and why things work. Some of the things I've learned is: How to make yogurt, cheese, soap, and many other things that my friends taunt me about. I don't mind. I would go nuts otherwise. My husband only gets paid once a month. So, I have become a meal planner & Once A Month Cooking lover. I shop on the first of the month, and only buy needed dairy and fresh ingredients through the rest of the month. So, I look for meals that work with our plans. And, one last note: I do have a small job to get me out of the house. I am a dance instructor, and LOVE to dance (which is where my silly photo came from). So, if you were to peek in my windows (which I don't recommend by the way - he he he) you'd see me cooking and dancing. They seem to go together SO WELL!! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="http://s224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/?action=view¤t=SpoiledPetbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/SpoiledPetbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/400035_d7f1b969-m3_1217872626.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
