Chocolate-Coconut Angel Cupcakes Recipe

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 24, 2010

The texture of this cupcake was hard to get past. However, my father was over the day I made these and he could just not get enough of them. He loved them!

MY REVIEW

Substituting the 1 1/2 cups of sugar in this recipe with a product like Splenda cuts a whopping 55-60 calories off each muffin! Just adjust accordingly.
