Yellow Buttermilk Cupcakes

It has been a long time since I posted recipes. It is not that I stopped sharing but need some time to load them up. I will continue to share my recipes as long as it is "allow".

This is an adapted or slightly tweaked recipes from Martha Steward - Cupcake book. It is very soft and light, flavorful as well due to the fact that it uses buttermilk. Do give it a try.
