Amish Shoo Fly Cupcakes

I got this recipe from an Amish lady who brought baked goods to the local Farmer's Market. The old fashioned molasses flavor with the crumb topping makes these cupcakes very good. They are not as rich as ShooFly Pie, which I find almost too much. These are just right, in my opinion.
