I tried this recipe the other day and it was almost perfect. I was hoping to find where it oirginated to see if anyone else experienced the same things I did.  Any ideas?

TIA

:)

AI lost this recipe and have been searching for it for over a month! Thank you for this link. I have only baked rounds with this not cupcakes but I would have issues with the center not getting good done and the edges too brown. I didn't preheat to 400 but put it straight into 325 and it worked fine.

Awesome!  It is soooo yummy.  My kids were going nuts over them and I think they will be perfect to fill with some delicious caramel.  

 

That was the issue I was having - too done outside not done enough center (with very little dome) - I'll try the 400/325 trick.

Thank you MB!  That little bit helped immensely.  I wasn't thinking "pound cake" because I've never added a leavening to mine.  But with your bit o' wisdom I was able to find the original recipe:

Then @MimiFix was spot-on in the other thread, as she said it was a southern recipe that was traditionally baked in a bundt pan.

I love this recipe for cupcakes, paired with some coconut icing.. mmmmm. When I baked it in my loaf pan, the top browned quicker than I expected, but not really so with my cupcakes. I did notice that the cupcakes shrunk a lot after they came out though, I think that's common with pound cakes. The tops did not dome (if that's something you're looking for). I have a favorite recipe for cupcakes now, but I love the flavor combo of this recipe.
