Great recipe for a rich, moist cupcake! The use of buttermilk provides a richer flavor to any baked good. If out of buttermilk-- In a 1-cup measuring cup, add 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Top the lemon juice with skim, low fat or whole milk. Stir and let sit for two minutes. I usually scoop my batter directly into cupcake pan instead of using the bag method. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home, I enjoy quick recipes that deliver a superior taste!
