I review a lot of recipes, but I'm happy to be the first reviewer of this one. The flavor of these is wonderful and would get five stars on its own. They are moist and fluffy. There are a couple of small problems, however. The recipe states to fill the cupcake liners "to the top". Even when I did this I ended up with 14 cupcakes. I'm a very experienced baker, so I wish I had gone with my gut and made 15 or 16 cupcakes. I ended up with the cupcakes spilling over the tops and adhering to the cupcake pan. I thought with all that baking powder they'd rise nicely, but they were pretty flat. I did follow the directions precisely, but added the vanilla with the other wet ingredients. I'm certain this didn't affect the outcome. The frosting is delicious, but mine turned out somewhat thin, even without all the milk. My advice would be to make 15 or 16 cupcakes, and to add NO milk to the frosting until the very end and then, only if you need it.
