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.

Two words: rainbow cupcakes.

While the festive colors may have been what caught your eye, I guarantee it’s the sugar cookie-esque taste that will grab your taste buds’ attention. Cupcakes that taste like sugar cookies? Yes indeed!

These light, buttery, impossibly moist cupcakes star six layers of rainbow colors that bake up into a centerpiece-worthy treat perfect for birthdays, St. Patrick’s Day, and any other ordinary or extraordinary occasion in need of a little color and a whole lot of flavor.

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.

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting

These are some of the most decadent cupcakes I’ve ever made – and in such a good way! They are rich and luscious and oh so irresistibly chocolatey! This is definitely one of my new favorite chocolate cupcake recipes (and if you want to make it more of a milder milk chocolate cupcake just reduce the cocoa 2 Tbsp and up the flour 2 more Tbsp, I tested them out both ways but definitely preferred the darker version here paired with the sweetness of the raspberry frosting). They are somewhat dense and deliciously fudgy and you’ll want to make them again and again.

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes

Thin Mint Fudge Cupcakes with chocolate minty cookie frosting and a layer of hot fudge sauce, yum!  These are a dream come true!  My friend ate one last night and she said “This was the best thing I’ve ever had.”

Since I only used the really fine cookie crumbs for the frosting, I used the larger pieces as “sprinkles” after I piped out the frosting.  No crumb left behind :)

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.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These Strawberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting are perfect! So moist and fluffy! And they are an amazing copy of one my favorite cupcakes!

So I think I’ve mentioned it before, but in case I haven’t here’s my little secret: Even though I bake mostly from scratch these days, I grew up on box mixes and store bought cakes.

So I set out to replicate the flavor of that cake mix, but from scratch. I’m pretty sure I hit the nail on the head. I’m in love with these cupcakes! I even put “love” on top of them.

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. 😉
