    To make muffins, place paper liners in 18 muffin cups. Spray liners lightly with cooking spray and fill each with 1/4 cup batter. Reduce baking time to 15 to 20 minutes.
    When I made this, I used just 3/4 cup sugar and it was fine for my taste. I felt that the spice quotient could be increased.
