Even after reading the mixed reviews, I decided that I would try these. I thought it was very odd that so many reviewers made a reference to corn bread. To disprove that theory, I worked diligently to follow every step precisely. I made sure my butter, eggs and buttermilk were at room temp. I creamed the butter and sugar until it was creamy and smooth. The oven was preheated and ready to go. I decided to make cupcakes. There was enough batter to make 30 (don't try to fill only 24 cups with this batter, because it does bubble, as some people have mentioned). My seven year old was the first to try out the finished product. He said "They're o.k., but no offense Mom, they taste like corn muffins".... And he's right!! Somehow, some way, they mutated into a corn bread taste and similar consistency. They are certainly edible and even quite good. The reason I give them one star is because I really wanted a great moist cake, not cornbread (which I could have whipped up much easier and faster).
