I had high hopes for this cake but unfortunately have to give it three stars because it doesn't work well for cupcakes. As others have mentioned in their reviews, this cake doesn't get high in the middle - it flattens out - and at least one person had theirs sink in the middle. For my cupcakes, the batter rose above the edge of the pan, then sunk, leaving a flat ring of cupcake baked onto the pan around the edge of every cupcake. That ring-around-the-edges of my cupcakes stuck to my expensive non-stick pan. I tried everything to get the cupcakes out of the pan without ripping the tops off, but it didn't work. (Note: I did use paper liners and the cupcake "stumps" weren't stuck, just the tops. I also followed the recipe exactly, made sure not to overmix after adding the flour, and filled the cupcakes about 2/3 - 3/4 full of batter.) On a good note, the batter was beautiful - light and fluffy - and the taste was pretty good. It would work as a cake rather than cupcakes. If you do try cupcakes, I'd recommend not filling the tins more than halfway.
