Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I made the Brown Sugar Cupcake's for Easter this year, I was amazed at how easy this recipe was. While making these Cupcake's, I had family over. The smell of the Cupcake's drew everyone to the Kitchen, they was all sitting there waiting for the Delicious Smelling Cupcake's to come out of the oven. Within 5 minutes, the Cupcake's disappeared. I had to make another batch of the Cupcake's, this time with the Brown Sugar Frosting that goes with the recipe for Easter Dinner. Everyone including myself thought the Cupcake's was scrumptious! Everyone wanted the recipe or more Cupcake's to take home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brown sugar heaven This cupcake recipe is amazing! I use truvia to help cut out sugar and calories. With this recipe, my family doesn't even know the difference! I make the cupcakes and freeze them and make the icing a batch at a time to have cupcakes on hand whenever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tasty and easy to make This was a good cupcake. Enjoyable to make. My daughter and I had a fun time making this recipe. I use Truvia in a lot of recipes. Really can't taste the difference when using in place of sugar. Would definitely make this recipe again.
