Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my new go-to recipe for white cupcakes. So moist! Not too dense! I substituted 1/2tsp of Vanilla extract with Almond extract and was rewarded with a summery cupcake that wowed my friends and family. Perfect paired with the buttercream recipe. Makes great mini-cupcakes too. I yielded 20 regular sized cupcakes and 18 mini-cupcakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a culinary student so I always check my textbook first for recipes. I needed a basic white cupcake recipe so after no luck I came to It took no time at all to make these. They look and taste amazing. I personally paired them with a no shortening butter cream but they would work with pretty much any flavor frosting!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from For the most part a simple recipe, however, horrible texture and taste! Doesn't really deserve one star...Dropped one on the floor as I was going to throw the batch out and it sounded like a rock hit the floor. Very dry, tasted like flour...And I followed the recipe without a single change. Never again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this recipe. It was super easy and everyone loved it, too. This recipe compliments all kinds of fillings. I have tried it with raspberry, mixed berry and fresh strawberries. This is a very versatile recipe and a good basic recipe to have in your recipe book or collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have heeded the warnings. And three bowls? I think the positive reviews are full of bull. These cupcakes are white. The color is spot on.
