    PaulaG's Note:

    This was a WeightWatchers recipe that I modified to make it more diabetic friendly. The original recipe called for all purpose flour, brown sugar, butter and an egg. I mixed the flours, used natural unsweetned applesauce for the butter and egg substitute for the egg. Also, the molasses was cut from 1/3 cup to 2 tablespoons.

      The flavor is really delicious and I love what the pepper does for it. I used 2 Tbsp of Splenda brown sugar blend, doubled the cinnamon and a 1/4 cup of egg white. I checked them at 20 mins and they were done. Even then they were beginning to be a bit chewy so I would recommend that you check them early. All in all these were a real success and well enjoyed. Made for "Partying The Diabetic Way".

      I had such high hopes for these and I wish they had turned out right. I followed the recipe using brown sugar and egg substitute. The only changes I made was to omit the pepper since I didn't have any and I used a bit of nutmeg since I didn't have clove. Unfortunately, my cakes came out rubbery on the outside and partially uncooked/mushy on the inside. I even gave them an extra five minutes in the oven but it didn't help :( The flavor on these were great but I couldn't get the texture...are you supposed to use self rising flour? My cupcakes didn't rise much and sunk in the middle while cooling. I'm glad this recipe worked for others and I appreciate the attempt at a healthier treat.

      Just a note, I omitted the pepper, and used ground ginger instead, afterall, they are called "Gingerbread" cupcakes.
