    I made these last night and they turned out quite nice as I also added organic vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. I'd also like to comment that they weren't as fluffy as to what I was hoping but shall definitely make them again and shall add maybe a level teaspoon of baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. Thanks again for sharing a decent basic cupcake recipe that one can build on. 18/7/11 Made them again and with baking powder and bicarbonate of soda they came out great so I'm back to change my 4 star rating to 5  -  09 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
