Hi Pauline, well spotted! There was a mistake which has now been corrected one cup, 150g of flour is correct. Apologies. The dh team
The cupcakes were dry. I weighed my ingredients as listed in the recipe. The recipe states 1 cup of flour weighs 220g yet in other recipes 1 cup of flour only weighs 150g. Liked the crunchy topping.
