Khalua Espresso Cupcakes


These adults-only treats will probably help you wake up in the morning (thanks to the espresso!) but probably should be served after dinner, due to the Kahlua in the batter and frosting. The vanilla bean paste and buttermilk in the batter enhance the flavor of the vanilla-y Kahlua, which is then set off by the espresso powder (and more Kahlua) in the otherwise traditional cream cheese frosting. Adding a few chocolate covered espresso beans to the top of each just give them a little extra “zing.”

Blueberry Cream Cupcakes


Blueberries in a cupcake may sound a little crazy from the outset, but look at it this way: blueberry muffins are a breakfast staple, so why not change up the batter a little, add some extra sugar and turn them into cupcakes, right? Not that you’ve got the picture in your head, mentally add on a whipped cream frosting and a couple of fresh blueberries (for extra color). The trick to keeping the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of each cupcake? Coat them lightly in flour. Breakfast of champions, right?

These chewy cupcakes are definitely something you should have for dessert or for afternoon tea.

Candy Corn Cupcakes


Although not everyone likes candy corn; everyone will love these candy corn cupcakes. Made from a standard yellow cupcake batter (with vanilla bean paste swapped in for vanilla extract to add extra richness) the candy corn part comes from the sweet frosting, not the candies themselves. After baking your cupcakes and allowing them to cool enough to frost, layer on a thick vanilla buttercream that’s been divided into thirds and dyed candy corn colors with food coloring. Frost them to match these traditional Halloween treats!

Strawberry and Lemon Cupcakes


Nothing shouts, “Summer!” more than these strawberry, blueberry and lemon cupcakes. The secret lies in the lemon cake dough and the fresh fruit chopped up into tiny pieces that fills each cupcake. Although you can use a strawberry-lemon jam, or any other type of chunky preserves, fresh fruit and a simple 4-ingredient cream cheese frosting (and a little food coloring) completes the argument that these cupcakes are kind of on the healthy side — after all, they do contain fruit!
