aye, that might be helpful info.

it was butter. made them from scratch.

How much butter did you use? I'm thinking the batter could have not been combined well with the dry ingredients. Would you provide more information on what process you used?

You can send all the cupcakes you want to me! I'll taste test em for ya Does sound like too much butter probably over mixed. If you overmix some recipes, they seem to separate later
