I used a 1.4 oz box of sugar-free pudding mix, and didn't use powdered milk... I wanted to keep it non-dairy and the pudding was more than the recipe called for. (Though they can't exactly substitute for one another!!) I used Splenda instead of sugar, and created my own self-rising flour by mixing baking soda and salt into all-purpose flour. The dough wound up VERY thick, almost elastic like a yeasted bread dough. I could have made these into doughnuts / bagels if I had wanted to! I think there should be some sort of liquid in there... maybe I'll try this again and add some soymilk. I nearly forgot the cocoa, so I just added it in at the very end of the mixing process. The texture of these was sort of strange -- kind of chewy -- but not necessarily BAD, just unusual. I got six medium-sized cupcakes / muffins. Thanks for posting. Made for My-3-Chefs, November 2008.
