    Awesome recipe; easy to put together and baking time for me (with jumbo muffin cups) was 20 minutes. I didn't use liners, and used soy milk for the regular milk; that was my only substitution. Even with greasing with shortening, especially the bottoms, I had a few cupcakes that still stuck to the bottom of the cups. These pans are quite old so I ordered new ones today; thinking the nonstick coating may be worn out. Any advice? I've Googled for tips and techniques and feel I've tried all of them. I also made red velvet cupcakes in these same pans, which use buttermilk, and had no sticking. Does that make a difference, I wonder?

    Great cupcake and so easy to make. I made them late at night with my 15 month old daughter who refused to sleep. We had a great time and made the icing the next day. The icing is great and will be used for other cakes and such. Definitely a keepsake recipe. Thanks for posting Redsie.

    Such delicious cupcakes! The only change I made was with the frosting: I halved the quantitities and used dark chocolate. Thanks for posting the recipe!
