when i use scratch recipes for cupcakes they don't seem to stay moist or rise perfectly so i use a box mix and substitute 1 cup buttermilk for water use four eggs and the amount of oil it says on the box, they come out perfect and moist every time.

You can half the WASC recipe, using 1 box mix and half all the other ingredients. I do it all the time.
1 box mix
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoons salt
1 cup sour cream
2 tbs oil
3 eggs
1 1/3 cups water
as much flavoring as you like

Try a victoria sponge recipe, if you want to try a scratch one, there's plenty online to find. It makes brilliant cupcakes!

I've recently discovered a really nice white cake recipe on Wren's Cottage website, scroll to bottom of page and click on Karen's Kitchen. The recipe translated really well into cupcakes, and stayed moist for a few days. icon_smile.gif HTH

That's my favorite web site Try the "Yellow Cake" recipe, it's really good.
