Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
I should have read through more reviews; these did not turn out. The top was hard as a rock and sunk in, and the inside wasn't even done. At first I thought this happened because I put some chocolate chips in the batter, but after reading some other reviews I see that I'm not the only one who had trouble. I read that opening the oven while baking, overmixing and overfilling can make cupcakes sink in, but I know I didn't do any of those things, so it has to be the recipe. I wouldn't recommend making these at all.

Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
First of all, these were delicious! Even the batter was some of the tastiest I've ever licked out of the bowl. I thought I was putting too much lemon juice in, but it was just perfect. The cupcake itself was delightfully lemony. I made jumbo cupcakes (six to a pan), and I had some batter left over. I cut the icing recipe in half and probably put too much on the cupcakes...it was far too sweet and everyone had to scrape some off the top. I felt a little sick after eating one, but that might have been because I ate a glob of the frosting that I had left over. I think if I actually had a normal cupcake pan around and made twelve, spreading the icing evenly over those instead of just six, these would have been perfect. I will definitely make them again though.

Lemon Squares I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
I have used this recipe many, many times, and everyone always loves them! I've only altered the recipe one time, and I put less lemon juice in it...bad idea! It didn't taste like lemons. My suggestion would be to not change the recipe; these turn out perfect every time.
