Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes

Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes

Spring is here and these Vegan Banana Blueberry Cupcakes are just what you need!  A banana cake with a hint of cinnamon, bursting with warm blueberries and topped with frosting!  Yum!

I just couldn’t help myself when these came hot out of the oven!  I had to eat one…or two.  Even without the frosting they make great muffins perfect for lunch boxes or picnics. But let’s be honest, adding frosting just makes every better.

Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting

Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting

These mocha cupcakes are a chocolate and coffee lover’s dream come true. If you can’t get your day going without your favorite cup of coffee, you’re in luck.

 I might even go so far as to suggest that you should just skip your morning cup of coffee or trip to Starbucks and have one of these instead. The cake part itself strikes a subtle balance between light chocolate and a hint of creamy coffee. Not overwhelming on either end of the spectrum, and the combination results in a smooth, clean flavor, which is perfect for topping with espresso-spiked buttercream.

Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes

Blood Orange Chocolate Cupcakes

There’s something just wonderful about the bold, sweet flavors of blood oranges. Make sure you grab some before they are out of season and make some baked goods!

These cupcakes use my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe as a base and it’s boasting with sweet orange zest and dark chocolate made richer with a hint of coffee. Topped with a blood orange frosting (isn’t the color gorgeous??), they are finished with decorative edible candied blood oranges dipped in chocolate.

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Strawberry shortcake is the classic summertime and springtime dessert.  I grew up eating this classic dessert and look forward to baking it when it starts to heat up outside. Every year, our family would get together and strawberry pick in the farm fields of Wisconsin.  After our gigantic strawberry haul, mom would make a batch of strawberry shortcake and homemade strawberry jam.

This recipe is actually adapted from my Strawberry Shortcake recipe I made last year.  Because that recipe is such a hit, I wanted to extend it to cupcakes.  Because it gets so hot out in the summer, I wanted to make a frosting that would withstand the summer heat of New Orleans.  Even with the air at 66 degrees in the house, traditional whipped cream frosting melts into a big hot mess.

Cinnamon Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Cinnamon Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Moist cinnamon pancake cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting and mini pancake toppers! Enjoy breakfast for dessert!

I’ve always been a huge fan of breakfast. I enjoy it throughout the day. But I’ve only occasionally incorporated it into dessert. I’m not sure why that is. So, I needed things to change.

Chocolate Malt Espresso Cupcakes

Chocolate Malt Espresso Cupcakes
The perfect combination of chocolate, malted milk and coffee. They are insanely rich and chocolatey, with hints of malt and a kick of espresso.
These one bowl cupcakes are probably one of the easiest recipes ever, yet one of the most mind-blowingly delicious! The rich, moist and fudgy, cupcakes are topped with a light creamy chocolate malt espresso frosting, a drizzle of simple chocolate glaze and finished with a tiny swirl of sweet vanilla buttercream and a chocolate malt ball on top, pure decadence.

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

As a Texan currently living in gray and dreary Germany, I miss the sun. My husband and I just returned from three weeks visiting friends and family in the South where we enjoyed t-shirt weather for all but a few days. When we returned to Berlin, it was 23°F and in the past 9 days, we’ve had a few hours of sunshine. I’ve never had a harder time getting out of bed!

I don’t like coffee or tea so for a pick-me-up, I turn to citrus goodies this time of year. They always boost my mood and make me a little more energetic. At least until the sugar high is over. 😉

Chai Cupcakes with Brown Butter Chai Icing

Chai Cupcakes with Brown Butter Chai Icing

Even if you’ve never been much of a tea person, you’ll want to take a stab at these chai cupcakes before you rule out the flavor forever. Not hot and watery, but certainly warm and perfectly spiced, these treats consist of an ingredient list that’s almost all spice and definitely all yummy. Top them with a buttercream icing, but not just any buttercream. This recipe uses brown butter and tops all that luscious flavor off with a crunchy sugar and spice sprinkle. Are you sold yet? We certainly are!

Apple Spice Cupcakes

Apple Spice Cupcakes

This one’s for the apple lovers. Surprisingly, this apple spice cupcake recipe starts with a classic vanilla recipe, but that’s where the simple ends. By subbing milk and white sugar for a few seasonal flavors including apple cider, brown sugar and various warming spices, the recipe transforms these no-frills white cupcakes into idyllic apple cider treats. Top the delicious recipe off with chopped apples in homemade caramel sauce, and you’ve got a dessert fit for royalty on your hands!
