This is the first time I ever had to rate a Kraft recipe this low. Something is just not right about this recipe. The taste is okay, but texture is very spongy and you wonder if it's even cooked all the way through (even after testing). Cupcakes sink in the middle after coming out of the over, given them a shrunken appearance. Garnish of whipped cream is a must to even make these appear edible. I also dusted with some nutmeg. I expected a nice cream cheese filling but it just blended into the batter so I barely tasted it. And the batter does make A LOT, I had 30 cupcakes. I wonder if it's the pudding that causes such a strange spongy texture? Overall, just did not like these and was disappointed in the way they turned out, even with all the tips and suggestions below. (Which by the way should have told me something isn't right with this recipe, if it needs that many adjustments). Sorry Kraft, but this one is off the list permanently.
