    Hi. do you know how many cupcakes this make? My batter made 12 but had so much extra crumble. So I made another batch of batter just to finish the crumble. It came out so good anyway. Just wish I could have more than 2 a day. Thanks for the recipe.

      I usually make about 15? Sometimes even more depending on how generous I am with the batter per liner!
      Well making more wouldn’t hurt i guess! More to eat! (: Glad you liked it!
