This worked great as cupcakes too. Just shorten cooking time depending on the size of your muffin tins. When tops are no longer sticky and a toothpick comes out clean, they're done. Now I can have a happy birthday.

Thank you, Chelle_N! This recipe was perfect. I made it for my daughter's 2nd birthday yesterday. I baked it for 35 minutes and it turned out perfectly baked and moist throughout. Topped it with a milk-free chocolate fudge frosting. It was the best dairy-free birthday cake we've had so far! By the way, I loved the idea of dusting the cake pans with cocoa powder - it worked very well and left none of the white powder mess that I usually have with flour.
