Hi Heather, We re-tested this cupcake recipe in the Test Kitchens. The cupcakes did not fall and become flat. You might try baking the cupcakes a little longer. A main reason why a cake falls is because it is underdone and needs additional baking time.

Mine fell in the middle as well and were cornbread-textured as well. Disappointing.

The lemon flavor was stronger than I prefer. They looked nice, but were not my favorite cupcakes.

They were not a light cupcake--rather coarse. I agree that the recipe would have made 20 since some were too full when they baked. The frosting was good and lemony.

The taste is great. I could have made 20 cupcakes. Some of mine were a little too full when they baked. When making the frosting, I only used 4T margarine. That made plenty of frosting. Very good recipe!!

Make the cupcakes a little lighter by substituting 2 Tbsp. applesauce for 2 Tbsp. of the 1/2 cup butter. This way, you will only use 3 Land O'Lakes 1/2 sticks perfectly! Also, if only baking cupcakes, 1 egg white will do the trick to hold the cupcakes together. Do not do it if baking a cake though. Enjoy!
