Want one less step? Replace the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with 1 ¼ cups of Bisquick Pancake Mix.
My preferred way to press the dough into the cupcake cups is with a muddler! Read the post for more tips on this step.
Want a larger product? Use a muffin tin and muffin liners instead of the cupcake. You can use the same ingredients, just double up on the amount you distribute into the cups.  (i.e. 1 Tbs of dough in the cupcake liner, means 2 Tbs dough into the muffin liner). Baking times won’t vary.
To reheat, cover with paper towel and microwave for 1 minute, or put back in oven set at 350° for 5-8 minutes.
