Chai latte cupcakes are a great fall or winter cupcake, especially when you tire of the classic chocolate and vanilla flavored treats. What’s unique about this recipe is that it uses instant chai powder, rather than requiring you to mix the spices on your own. This gives them a stronger, more robust flavor. Other seasonings, like cardamom and vanilla, are used in the batter as well. The frosting is a buttercream that has been flavored with cinnamon and more cardamom. Talk about your unique, yet tasty, combinations!

Red Velvet Christmas Cupcakes

The color of red velvet cupcakes automatically make them a candidate for classic Christmas treats. When you add in some green tinted cream cheese frosting (or leave it alone and take advantage of its natural white color) and possibly some sprinkles or colorful edible decorations, you are left with a Christmas-themed cupcake that can be served all December-long. These particular cupcakes are baked in standard cupcake liners, although you can substitute holiday ones to amp up their level of fun!

Brown Butter Cupcakes – If You’ve Ever Burnt Something, You Can Make Brown Butter

Baking with brown butter is slightly more complicated than simply mixing the ingredients together to form batter — but the results are worth it. These cupcakes contain brown butter, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, egg whites, sugar, vanilla extract and whole milk. The cream cheese frosting is made from lucuna powder (lucuna is a maple-like sweetener that is native to South America), cream cheese and more unsalted butter. Definitely different, definitely tasty.
