    I made these today for Easter. I followed the directions exactly and to me they were a little dry. They almost had the consistency of cornbread. I was going to give them to the neighbors but couldn't bring myself to do it. Sorry.

    These were great! I always cheat and use a box recipe. They were so moist and easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

    These are VERY good! I love the fact that I can make the white cake from scratch! I used 2 1/4 cups of flour instead of 2 3/4. This recipe made 16 cupcakes. Great recipe! I added my photo!

    These cupcakes were wonderful! Thanks Linda! I made them this past easter and everyone loved them. Slightly dry but I used a very creamy buttercream frosting that made up for it. Noticed that it was similar to surprise easter cupcakes #86865 like someone else mentioned but I liked the fact that it didn't use boxed cake mix. I tried putting the vanilla wafer in the bottom like the other recipe said but that was a bad idea. The cookies dried out and burned a little being so close to the bottom. Will definitely do it your way next time without the wafers.

    Really good! The batter was delicious and not difficult to make with my Kitchenaid stand mixer. Everyone loved the "surprise" and they were delicious! Thanks!
