Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes

I love fall. The weather is perfect – crisp mornings lead to warm afternoons and chilly nights. You have the chance to wear the cutest clothes of the season. Who doesn’t love layering tights, knee high socks, circle skirts, scarves, and sweaters? And can we talk about fall food? You never get the chance to eat cranberries, candied nuts, or pumpkin any other time of the year! Continue reading Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes


Classic Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet was the first flavor of cake that I fell in love with.  It’s unique chocolate-y, slightly tart flavor and vivid red color makes it unique against all other cakes.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with red velvet, let me break it down for you.  It’s a vanilla base cake, with just a touch of coco and tastes delightfully tangy and sweet.  It’s dense and moist crumb yields an incredible velvet texture.  Red velvet isn’t just vanilla, or isn’t just chocolate; it’s a wonderful combination of both.

The Easiest Chocolate Cupcakes EVER

Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes

Wow that title was a mouthful!  There’s nothing I love more about Thanksgiving then the flavors and scents that you get.  Like pumpkin, sweet maple, and a spicy cinnamon.  Really, I never bake any of those flavors again in the year, except during fall and Thanksgiving!  If you’re trying to find something to bring to that (second) Thanksgiving dinner party, look no further.  These cupcakes are TO DIE FOR.
