    This is a delicious and almost fail-proof chocolate cupcake recipe. It results in a moist and tender cake with a delicate crumb and a perfect chocolate flavor. I've used this for both full size cupcakes and mini cupcakes and both turned out beautifully. I followed the recipe as written, so alterations.

    The worst recipe I ever made from "Martha"! Something is drastically wrong with the ingredient amazing, and I suspect it is the baking soda/ baking powder proportions. Rose beautifully while baking, then flopped and sunk terribly. Wasted a lot of good ingredients, as well as my time. Does anyone try these recipes before publishing, or was this someone's idea of a joke? Won't trust Martha again!
