Day 188 – Caramel Cupcakes

4 Feb

Wow! It is a winter wonderland here! (In New York, that is.) I think something rich and gooey might be called for today. To counter the wintery weather! How about these Caramel Cupcakes (recipe below from My Food Trail)?

Cupcake     Mini-Cupcake

The cupcakes are super moist!! Dense and squishy. They are sweet with a light caramel flavor. Not overly strong or dark.


The frosting hardens really fast, so get it straight onto the cupcakes. Mine didn’t flow quite evenly over my cakes. It has a much stronger caramel flavor than the cupcake.

Together, the cupcake tastes just like a sweet cake, not really caramel at all. The frosting shines through a lot. It’s a very sweet, simple cupcake. Nothing fancy. No frills. Light caramel taste.
