I attempted to make these as cupcakes as another reviewer said they had done successfully and had a really rough time of it! It was tough to know when they were done and even though a toothpick came out clean, they were not done. And I had sprayed the muffin tins with spray, which made the final product taste really oily. So, I know it was operator error and not the recipe, which is why no stars! I'm just saying "Don't make the same mistake I did!" Thanks for posting a fun one to try!
