  • I came up with 35 carbs for each cupcake. With sugar, flour and molasses, I don't understand how you calculated only 2.8 grams. Can you show your math? - 6/27/12

  • These are really good! I made exactly 21 cupcakes and with my oven, 18 minutes was the max amt of baking time. These feel more like a muffin to me, they taste great with butter for breakfast. I wouldn't recommend a super sweet frosting for them, they are fairly sweet. I will make these again! :) - 12/17/11
