These were my favorite cupcakes when I was growing up. I'm typing this from an old, yellowed recipe card from my aunt. They are really moist due to the sour milk. If you don't have sour milk, you can add a small amount of vinegar to sweet milk. Buttermilk could also be used. These cupcakes were also a favorite of my children and my husband. Enjoy!
