Well, sometimes, me! Cupcakes have been such a craze lately, little shops with all kinds of magical flavors ….and what do you find in the shops? Beautiful little cakes piled high with mountains of frosting in creative flavor combinations! And what do you really get? Well, I think the cakes tend to be dry. Or they are dry cakes stuffed with overy sugary frosting, and then twice as much frosting as cake on top. Not a fan. Sorry.
BUT! I loved cupcakes growing up. Especially homemade one, from a wonderful moist cake recipe…and frosted within reason on top with a creamy and delicious frosting, homemade of course!
SO! Testify!!! These? These sweet treats from Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind….are like going back to the moist cakes of my childhood! Truly moist little cakes with delicious creamy frosting. I wouldn’t change a thing!
They are very straightforward, delicious! (I do think I doubled the cinnamon in the cake, because I love chocolate with cinnamon!) I did not share these. I kept them in the fridge, and before a meal, I would take one out so by the time I was ready, so was my little cake!
And I will admit right now. The moment they were all frosted, I stood in the kitchen and devoured two right there. (I sat down for the third one!!! SHHHH!)
So of course I had to run out and tell me sister to make these asap. Which she did. These are winner cupcakes! Worth the trip to the bookstore to pick up the book for the recipe right now, make a stop at the grocery store for whatever you don’t have on hand, and get in the kitchen! What on earth are you waiting for! These are grain free, gluten free, paleo deliciousness!
As you can tell, I am a fan. These are my favorite thing out of the book so far!
I would share, but they are gone. And I have to eat them all anyway! Happy baking!
