The vanilla cupcake recipe is easy to follow , spongy cake .im not much of a fan of the cream cheese icing, I should've made a regular coffee flavored buttercream... But still 4 stars !
Wow these are OUTSTANDING! The cupcakes are one of the best vanilla cupcakes I've ever made. The cream cheese and sour cream give the batter a really thick consistency and make the cupcakes taste great! And the frosting is out of this world!
Not the easiest or fastest recipe, but I added 1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa powder, a package of hazelnut instant coffee, subbed yogurt with 1/2 tsp baking soda for sour cream (simply because I didn't have any around), and used Duncan Hines' mocha frosting, and it was a fantastic hit among the coffee lovers!
Delicious! The batter is a thick, sticky consistency and it was a slight challenge putting them into the muffin cups, but they turned out tasty. The espresso buttercream is outstanding! These cupcakes taste just like a cappuccino and they are beautiful with the espresso and cinnamon sprinkled on the top! I will definitely make these again.
