Okay, I need to add a note to this--you have *got* to use paper or (much better) foil muffin cups with these. I made them for the third time this past weekend, and greased the muffin tins instead of using foil muffin cups. They stuck so badly that my muffin tins were ruined, I scraped the finish off them trying to get the cupcakes out. I couldn't get any of them out without them being in pieces. Still a 5 star flavor, but I'm out two muffin tins!
