Reviews for Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes

"Yes, it's true...no eggs! But, my family felt they were a little dry. Definitely needs a glass of milk to wash them down."
"These cupcakes were great with the touch of orange. Easy to make too, especially when you're out of eggs!"
"These turned out great and did not last long at our house. They were moist and very tasty. The hint of orange flavoring was just right. I will be making them again soon."
