    For some reason my iPad wouldn't let me click on 5 stars but I would. This is my go-to recipe for birthday cakes/cupcakes! Everyone goes crazy for them! Because of all of the sugar, they barely need frosting. I just use frosting in a jar for my kids vs going to the trouble of making butter cream. Everyone always wants the recipe 😋

    Great result every time, I love how light they are and the chocolate flavor is the perfect balance. Also the recipe is easy to divide into smaller batches. My 3 year old loves to help me make these they are that uncomplicated.

    I made these cupcakes this morning. The taste was great, only they were a little too moist. I believe that was because I baked them at a lower temperature?

    Excellent result, my second time ever making cupcakes so I didn't even know you could use oil, not need a fancy mixer and I was skeptical when I read to add water but I just did as instructed and it was perfect. The ingredients were super simple, I made buttermilk with regular milk & lemon juice as a DIY place filler, I found the recipe online. What a hit! Easy to divide by three for just 12 cupcakes as I did.

    Isn't 3 cups a sugar a bit too much? I made cupcakes using this recipe and they came out horrible and hard and very very sugary.

    What adjustments should I make to bake these cupcakes at high altitude?

    These turned out perfect! I made them today- added a dozen or so frostings - and everybody loved them. So easy, so moist, so yummy! *_*

    I've made these last week for a friends birthday. It was perfect, especially with my homemade salted caramel frosting, it really compliments each other. I did 2 other frosting which are lemon orange and barcardi flavoured. Salted caramel frosting is well liked by all.
