Can you make this in a four side jar?
Flavor very tasty but cupcakes did not rise. Next time I will make the batter the old fashioned way to see if that works better. Had just enough batter to do one layer in each cupcake for 24 and I should have only made 12. Only had about a tsp of apple for each one. That is a lot of work for only 12 cupcakes. Also it would have been easier to make the frosting with a beater as it is too hard getting it out of the blender.
Yes, you can!
I wasn’t sure what size cupcake tins to use, so I used the regular size ones—not mini. Mine did not rise either. I continued to cook them hoping they would rise, but no. :0( They taste great and I will enjoy them for breakfast.
Darn! Was the baking powder you used expired? We’ve tested the recipe several times and it makes 22 cupcakes so it’s strange that you couldn’t make that many. Glad you agree that they’re tasty!
