Loves this recipe. I switched out the oil for more applesauce and tripled the cinnamon. It makes a delicious, hearty and healthy weekday breakfast!

Is there a typo in the number of servings? It says serves 12, but then directions say to grease just 8 muffin cups. I divided it up among 12 cups, but feel like this could have made 18 smaller cakes instead.
