    I made these cupcakes and filled them with chocolate orange pudding. They were great but it only made 14 cupcakes

    These cupcakes turned out absolutely beautiful! They truly were perfectly moist and were also the perfect level of chocolatey. Super easy to make even though I’m only 13. I will be making these again!

    These cupcakes are so moist and delicious! I used a strawberry cream cheese icing instead of chocolate, and they were very tasty!

    Fantastic! My grandmother added a pinch of clove to the batter and the icing. I followed her lead and wow, just like grandma use to make!

    I made a chocolate cake instead of cupcakes. Used milk instead of buttermilk and it was still great. Light and fluffy.

    Very good cupcake. I would recommend adding melted chocolate chips if you really enjoy a strong chocolate taste.

    Very tasty!! I would try another recipe, in search of perfection but it’s still very good. I used cream cheese frosting.

    This was really good. I used a different frosting, but the cupcake part was really good. I would definitely make these again. My family loved them.

    They were great. I however used self raising flour instead of the plain and omitted the baking powder and baking soda. Haven't sampled them myself but the neighbors thought they were yummy. My 2 year old grand daughter helped frost them. lol We will sample after dinner.
    they are amazing very rich and moist

    I actually made it Jan 10th. Great recipe but only thing I got mixed up with was the part with the coffee or hot waters. It should of read add hot water or hot water with coffee to your taste and not just half cup of hot water or half cup of coffee. It did confuse me. Other than that it is a great recipe. Cupcake were really moist.
