SO HOW'D IT GO?

Very Moist! I used 1/2 cup raspberry jam and 1/2 cup water instead of just water. Also, I added almond extract and vanilla extract, and blended all the wet together.
They turned out really nice, I like this recipe because I bought nayonnaise wanting to try it out but I hate the taste so I needed to use it up somehow where I couldn't taste it.
Im going to put icing on them (aren't very sweet, so they need it) and let my bf eat them in his lunches. Thanks for the recipe!

well, to combine my family's recipe with yours: i omitted the water for coffee, added 1 1/2 tsp baking POWDER, and used a liquor instead of vanilla; POOF! awesome cupcakes. i think the coffee gives simply a richer flavor and the baking powder is a must... that is the cake's rising agent!

nevertheless, great recipe... i hope these alterations help someone.  ;D

Made this for my room mate, He loved it. I used the cake form and for the frosting I used Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting. The combination was outstandingly awesome.
