    These cakes are brilliant (and brilliantly easy). I use half the amount of sugar with good results.

    vet50 I would try the pineapple first before something else, you can't really taste it that much & he may not notice am only suggesting this as my DH is allergic to pineapple and still managed to try some!!

    Cupcake cases = muffin cases Cupcakes by definition have tops completely covered in icing, the case holds all the icing in place as the tops are roundy. Without the cases, they would be volcano lava cakes :-)
