Followed the "cupcake" recipe exactly. Definitely would not define these as cupcakes by modern expectations. They are very good, but not sweet at all and definitely fall in the muffin category. I also found the frosting to be disgusting as written. I added a fairly significant amount of powdered sugar and spices (cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg) to make it taste good and have a better consistency. Even with dark amber syrup, the maple flavor was not noticeable. I would recommend adding some maple flavoring if you want that flavor to emerge more.
