I thought these were kind of 'magical', and that they could be adapted quite well to cauldron cakes. They are so fluffy and just SOOOOOO good! I used my Black & Decker steam machine (best kitchen gadget EVER!) and some heavy, ramikin like teacups instead of cupcake trays. In one cup, I added dark chocolate, in one ginger, and in the last vanilla. 20 minutes wasn't quite long enough for the steaming, it was still gooey in the middle, but very very tasty! The second batch is in now, for 25 minutes- hope that's enough!
ETA: The ginger is the best. To the entire recipe, I added about 2 tsp. Vanilla (in place of Anise, cause I don't have any.) In this particular cup, I used just a sprinkle of powdered ginger, and mixed it in. If you make this recipe, which you should, try the GINGER!
