Made this tonight. My husband loved it. I didn't have a muffin pan, just cupcake pans so instead I used a mini loaf pan to shape the bowls. Following another raters suggestion, I brushed them with a little olive oil on both sides. They turned out great, good flavor. They were not as messy as I thought they would be. The bowls held together well. Will be adding this to my recipe file and definitely making again!
