I’ve never been a big cupcake person, but lately I’ve been on a bit of a kick. Here is what I’ve tried so far. I made modifications to most of the recipes but I can’t remember them. I’ve linked to the recipes I liked or invented myself.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Coconut-Pecan Frosting (otherwise known as German Chocolate Cupcakes) — You can’t go wrong with this. The icing is SO DELICIOUS. If you haven’t tried it and aren’t sure about it, DO IT NOW.
Champagne Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream Icing – These were classy and fab. Again, the icing was a mega win but I didn’t love the cupcake recipe I used.
Amoretto (Almond) Cupcakes with Lemon Glaze — I don’t remember how I made these but the cupcakes were probably my favourites so far. I flavoured them with almond extract and it was a win.
Carrot Muffin “Cupcakes” with Cinnamon Honey Cream Cheese Frosting — The cinnamon honey cream cheese frosting literally had those ingredients (plus vanilla) and it was so delicious — and not altogether horribly unhealthy! The icing was so tasty the healthiness of the muffins wasn’t even an issue.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Cassis (Blackcurrant) Frosting and Dark Chocolate Drizzle
Earl Grey Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream – These were AMAZING. I still wasn’t totally sold on the actual cupcake– not moist and fluffy enough for me. But they were delicious, especially with the zingy lemon buttercream we made with butter, icing sugar, fresh squeezed lemon juice and lemon rind.
