Maple and walnut are classic flavor combinations for a reason. They taste awesome together! Whether you are making maple walnut bread, pancakes, or cakes just one whiff of the maple and toasted walnuts together and you know that you are on the right path. These Maple Walnut Cupcakes are simply scrumptious. The cupcake batter is a simple vanilla cupcake recipe, but with the addition of chopped walnuts. The highlight of the day though has to be the creamy maple buttercream frosting. I could just lick the bowl and be happy all day. Try topping with some candied walnuts for a touch of class.
