So I feel like this should be something submitted anonymously to PostSecret or something because of my shame, but I don't love the cupcakes in VCTOTW, specifically the chocolate and vanilla. The batter tasted really good, but I was completely underwhelmed by the baked product. The flavors seemed muted in both. The chocolate seemed fluffier and less rich than I was looking for, and the vanilla tasted more like a muffin, like a sweetened corn muffin?

Anyway, do you all have any other cupcake recipes that you love? Thanks!

This is the best cupcake recipe I've found: http://theblackoven.blogspot.com/2008/0 ... noire.html

The filling part is not vegan, and while I'd love to veganize it, just use the cake part. For vanilla, leave out the chocolate. I make it into spice cupcakes with a ton of cinnamon and cloves and nutmeg. I've made it into chocolate mint cupcakes, salted caramel.... Uh, yeah. I just base everything off that main cupcake recipe.

Just so you know you're not alone, I don't like the texture of the VCTOTW vanilla cupcakes, either. Solidarity!

On this note, what's everyone's favorite vanilla cake? The one I used most recently was from vegan diner and I liked it, but I feel like I'm always searching for the best vanilla cake.
