I converted this cake to cupcakes. The recipe made about 12 cupcakes and I baked them for 25 minutes. They were OK, but the texture is more like brownies than cake. It gets a crust on the outside and is more dense than cake typically is. It might be because I made cupcakes instead of a cake, but if I were to make it again, I'd use a quarter cup of applesauce or half a mashed banana to moisten it up and given it the typical springy texture of cake/cupcakes.
