  1. I have now made 2 batches of these for my family, and they are amazing! I forgot the spray the liners before putting batter in them the first time (BIG NO NO, lol!) These have been a big hit. I can't wait to make a big batch to take with us for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!
    • These will work fine as mini cupcakes. Watch them so closely because they won't take as long to cook. You can test for doneness by touching lightly with finger to see if it springs back slightly or the toothpick test. Not quite sure the exact baking time because we haven't made them in mini form yet.
