Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson has several cupcake recipes on her site:Lavendar trust cupcakesChocolate cherry cupcakesChristmas cupcakesBasic cupcake recipe
I've been severely burned (not literally) by some of Nigella's baking recipes in the past, including chocolate cupcakes that never rose and tasted like nothing. I think it was due to problems with weights & measures in the first edition of Domestic Goddess (or maybe I'm just a spaz)... but forewarned is forearmed! Make sure the ratios look right before you bake.
Yes, I made the plain version of her 'fairy cakes' and loved them. Easy easy recipe. Mmmmm
i tried nigella's basic cupcake recipe, but it didn't work. it was too dense and a little bit bland. i succeeded with the magnolia recipe you posted though... and i got to thinking that maybe why the nigella recipe failed was mostly because of the steps (the recipe said to just mix everything away, and so I did, that being my first time baking any cake from scratch...) so maybe i'll have to try the recipe using the steps from magnolia recipe...
