Hi all.. i just tried out this recipe the other day since it was super hot and i was craving something lemony. Unfortunately as i didn't have buttermilk i substituted the 6tbsn of it with 1/4C of yogurt and 2 TBS of milk. However, my cupcakes turned out to be a disaster! It was very very sour and the cupcake liners immediately started peeling off the sides of the cupcakes after i took it out of the oven.. cos the cupcakes shrank a little as it cooled!! What did i do wrong?? Was it cos of the substitution i made using the yogurt and milk?? icon_sad.gif

serenelui, sorry to here about your disaster, I cna not answer your question as I don't ever substitute, but hopefully one of the ladies will answer your question soon. You do know that you can make buttermilk with regular milk and lemon juice don't you??

Hi Dawn, yeah.. i saw that as one of the substitutes to the buttermilk when i did the search online.. but i thought of using the yogurt cos i thought it would make the cupcake more moist :p Now wondering whether to try this recipe again.. but worried about throwing away the whole batch again like the last time though :p

If there is anyone still watching this the recipe, it calls for extra large eggs. Out of curiousity, has anyone replaced those with large. If so, how many large eggs did you use?

I think the difference in volume between large and extra large is negligible. I think you'd be fine if you used them 1 for 1. If you went to medium I'd say throw in one extra, but that's just me.

Thanks. It's just you don't see a recipe calling for xl or small very often.

me neither. I wanted to try these but didn't want to head to the store for xl...the instructions (yes, I took them literally) were to follow the recipe exactly the first time. I skimmed through the thread first to see if anyone substituted or if those who tried it, actually used xl eggs.

I will try these as soon as I clear my table of tax time debris....ugh. I actually used to look forward to tax time...not anymore.

I rarely buy them, only if there is a sale or something. And then I generally use them for breakfast, not baking, since most recipes are designed with large eggs in mind. That's kind of the standard.

Mmmm... I could go for a fried egg right now. Mmmm.
