What size and how many cupcakes does this recipe make?

For me, it filled a regular sized muffin tin with 12 wells and there was some left that I baked in a ramekin.

The Lyn-Genet Plan said...

The cupcakes are standard size and should yield about 18. Enjoy!

Is there a way to make this without eggs?

She said that you can google chia as an egg replacement for baking.

Can you substitute coconut flour for the almond flour or something else? My daughter has a almond allergy

I have tried substituting coconut flour for almond flour (less expensive). It works, but doesn't taste as good, and the texture is less nice.

The butter listed in the ingredients goes IN the batter itself, right? You used extra butter to grease the tins, right Lyn-Genet?
