My first attempt at making cupcakes! Ingredients were easy to find and recipe easy to follow (even for someone as inexperienced as myself!). Was not overly impressed with the finished product however. I would have prefered the cupcakes to be more moist and soft, and to have a bit more flavour. My flatmate however loved them and even decorated a few with buttercream (which made them a lot tastier!). I probably will not use this recipe again but if I do I'd add white choccolate chips to the cupcake and buttercream on top just to enhance the flavours and to make the cupcakes less dry.

What a brilliant, quick and easy recipe. Will be trying this with different combinations - am thinking an apricot variation maybe.

I thought these where a little bland, must have done something wrong. Considering everyones comments.

Best cupcake recipe I have tried! Would recommend this to anyone. Is very versitile also. I did Lemon curd cupcakes, same recipe except I put some grated lemon rind in the cup cakes, cut a little hole in the top when they were baked and cooled down, and popped some lemon curd in them. They were awesome. I did the original recipe also, and that was brilliant too.

Excellent recipe easy to follow and great end result. I added some dark chocolate chunks and made and orange butter cream and raspberry icing which worked really well. My friends keep asking for more!

Beautifully tasty and fresh. However the raspberries sunk to the bottom and they ended up quite soggy :( Still delicious though!

I'm not a great baker, so was thrilled with how delicious these cakes were. I'd certainly make them again, but may try with just the orange juice on top, rather than the sugar mix, so that I get the moist cake without so much sweetness. Will see if it works.

These are absolutely delicious! I changed the recipe a bit though: For less fat I substituted 100 grams of butter with 100 grams of natural yoghurt. Instead of ground almonds I used 25 grams of ground hazelnuts and 25 grams of poppy seed. I cut down on the sugar and only used 150 grams - they came out very sweet still and I think that next time I'll only use 100 grams. I added more raspberries and some vanilla extract to the dough. Since I had no oranges at home, I made a lemon drizzle. They were really moist and tasty, really lovely!
