Note on Baking: It is difficult to over bake these beauties because they’re so moist from the oil, butter and egg whites. The maple sugar will melt too, creating a juicy center. As they bake, the butter will sizzle and the cakes will rise. It’s important to bake them until the exterior develops a crunchy shell.
