I can see you sitting at home, staring at your computer screen, and scoffing at my bold statement. Driest pancake in the world? Recipes. Ming Makes Cupcakes. Vanilla Cupcakes For Two. Let’s face it: sometimes we all need a dessert that only makes two servings.

Vanilla Cupcakes For Two

Sometimes we just can’t handle 12 servings. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves in two hours. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves in a matter of minutes.

Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes

Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin as much as anyone else, but to me September is apple season. I was thinking about how often apples get overshadowed by pumpkin a few weeks ago when my husband asked me if I wanted to attend a dinner party with some of his coworkers. “Hrmmm.

Ultimately, I decided the best way to pack that punch of apple flavor into a cupcake was to use apple pie filling. 90-Second Nutella Chocolate Cake. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.

Last month I received an email "forward" from my brother-in-law with a recipe for a 5 Minute Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake.

My first reaction as a long time baker was suspicious, but the concept was intriguing. The recipe kept buzzing around my head and I thought, what the heck, I'll just try it.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Is it the shape? The texture? The frosting? Because while these might look like mini-cupcakes, I don’t think I’d consider them cupcakes. They are brownies, through and through. But these, cupcake or not, are delicious. Based off of the delicious and oh-so-decadent Crunchy Peanut Butter and Fudge Brownies, but instead of one big pan of brownies, I went the bite sized route and made them in mini muffin tins. This is the halved version of the recipe, and it made 3 dozen. Have leftover peanut butter mixture and chocolate?
