    Instead of using large muffin tins, I used a regular muffin tray and baked for 18-20 minutes (until toothpick came out clean) They were perfect! No pits in the middle like others had with the larger ones. A perfect dome top :) Made about 18 muffins.

    This is a great recipe! I changed the water out but it turned out amazing.

    I'm terribly disappointed. While they taste terrific, they aren't presentable at all. They have a HUGE pit in the middle of them. Too much baking powder/soda? I'm not sure! But they suck.

    The flavor of these cupcakes are divine! The texture is perfect! I have made 3 batches today and the only problem I have is the sinking centers :( Any ideas as to why would be great! I'm making cakeballs out of the ones I can't use...yummy!
