"These are the most moist cupcakes I have ever had. It is more of an adult cupcake, as it is not piled with frosting. The glaze on top gives just enough sweetness and flavor!"

These cupcakes were absolutely delicious! I substitued canola oil for the vegetable oil. For the glaze I used more than 1/2 a cup of strawberries and only about a cup of sugar. I usually don't make recipes from this site that have low ratings, but I am glad I made these. Just a note - if you are using a regular cupcake pan, this recipe will make 18-24 cupcakes, not 12 like it states. I filled my cupcakes up to the top and ended up with a major muffin top. These store well unglazed. I kept them covered on the counter for a few days, and felt they got better a day or two after they were baked. I just kept the glaze in the fridge and used it as needed (which I also felt got better a day or two after it was made). I will definitely make these again, and experiment with different fruit glazes for the topping. Excellent - Five stars!!


I had some mascarpone left over from another recipie so I gave this recipe a try. The mascarpone really really maked a big difference - Delicious!


These cupcakes were disappointing. I made the cupcake part exactly as the recipe stated. They were fairly moist, but I thought they would be even more moist. They tasted like a normal cupcake to me. I don't know if I over-mixed or what. I prefer the ricotta cake recipe on this site, which also uses a box mix.
