Gingerbread Cupcakes

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Zucchini Chip Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

Peanut butter cupcakes? You bet. They’re surprisingly delicious, and kids of all ages will love them. The mini peanut butter cups eliminate the need to add frosting.The cupcake has the perfect moistness and icing is amazing. And you can’t go wrong with a peanut butter cup inside. The recipe is incredibly easy to make and I’m so happy that Jamie said it was okay for me to share the recipe on my blog! I only modified it slightly and that’s because I didn’t read her recipe close enough when I asked my husband to pick up some of the ingredients for me. I had him buy the smaller boxes of instant pudding and it worked out just fine.

Creamy Chocolate Cupcakes

Sometimes, a cupcake is best when the icing is inside it, rather than spread across the top! Your family and friends will be happily surprised when they discover the smooth cream-cheese filling that awaits inside.

Sunken Cherry Cupcakes

Why ask for a cherry on top when you can have a cherry in the middle? Bake these easy-to-make cupcakes outside the cherry season, too, by having a supply of cherries on standby in the freezer with the stems and pits removed.

Marzipan-Orange Muffins

What’s the difference between a muffin and a cupcake? There’s no formal answer, though some say a muffin is more “bready” and cupcake more sweet and fluffy.  All we know is that the triple combination of almond-flavored ingredients-marzipan, almond liqueur and flaked almonds-gives these muffins a delicious taste and texture.

Apricot-Pecan Muffins

These moist and delicious muffins are perfect for breakfast or brunch as well as being a great snack any time. They are delicately spiced and packed with flavorful fresh fruit and nuts.Like raisins, dates, and other dried fruits, apricots pack tons of concentrated flavor and sweetness into muffins. If apricots aren’t a favorite, swap them, in this recipe, with equally delightful dried peaches or cherries.
