Day 337 – Salted Caramel Cupcakes

3 Jul

Sure.  Caramel may be a bit more fall or winter flavor.  But, I couldn’t let this final month go by without another caramel cupcake.  It’s just SO GOOD!  Salted Triple Caramel Cupcakes (recipe below from Sally’s Baking Addiction).

Caramel-Cupcake     Mini-Caramel-Cupcake

The cupcakes are light and chewy and oily. They have a fairly strong, sweet caramel flavor. Stronger than other caramel cupcakes I’ve tasted. But not dark or bitter.

Caramel-Frosting

The frosting is very, very thick. I added a fair amount of cream just to get it all mixed together. It has a sugary, sweet caramel flavor. Dark and smooth, but very sugary at the same time.

These cupcakes are very caramely! If you’re a caramel fan, you’ll really enjoy these. They’re dark, but not bitter. Pretty sweet. Simple and yummy.
