Have you tried that recipe? I haven't used it but it has had rave reviews here on the MB and if you haven't already tried it you may like to do so. :-))

245sam, how much cream in them, it doesn't say!

alebix, Apr 21, 12:19pm
Over mixing it... . takes the air out of it. . try sifting all dry ingrediants.
just mix/fold till everything is just combined.

245sam, Apr 21, 1:10pm
That's correct krazy_kat, the recipe does not specify the exact quantity of cream that's required because it states... . .

"Crack the eggs into a 250ml measuring jug then fill the cup with cream. " - sorry I can't help you further except to say that IMO you would need at least 125ml (½ cup cream) but remember that the quantity of cream depends on the size of the eggs being used. :-))

I can also recommend rkcroft's recipe and the second one posted by pam. delilah in the cupcake thread. I've sometimes had problems with cupcake and muffin recipes which seem dry to me but these two work well.

I use rkcrofts recipe everytime, I just love it. All i do is crack two eggs into my 1cup measuring cup and fill to the top with cream. This works well. :o)
