I used this recipe about a week ago to make cupcakes, they were good, but a little dry. So after reading lots of reviews I made the following tweeks:
Used 3/4 cup milk instead of 1/2 cup
Add a pack of vanilla instant pudding/pie filling to the dry flour mixture
Used 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract instead of 2 teaspoons
Made sure ALL my items were at room temp (milk & eggs)
I creamed my butter before adding the sugar and then creamed them together for about 10 minutes in my mixer.
I filled my cupcake cups almost full and baked for 20 minutes.
I also added a pinch of salt to the flour mixture
Ya'll I just tasted one before I put the frosting on and they are DELISH!!! Soooo moist! I will never buy box cake again!
I also added food coloring bc my daughter wanted purple and blue cupcakes for her birthday and the cake mix took to the food coloring very well!!!!
