Best Cupcake Recipes

by Alli

Cupcakes – they never go out of style! Give me a cupcake and I’m a happy camper. I like baking cupcakes almost as much as eating them so I decided to share my best cupcake recipes so you can pick your own favorite. 

I’d be hardpressed to name my favorite cupcake. I have so many, so I decided to put all my best cupcake recipes in one collection. I have lots of cupcake recipes so hold on to your hat and I may pick my absolute favorite at the end. Decisions. Decisions. 

Why Do We Love Cupcakes?

I like having my own individual dessert. Plus, the frosting is usually piled high so you get more frosting on a cupcake than a traditional slice of cake. 

Plus, you don’t even need plates or cutlery. And cupcakes are portable so you can walk around and eat. You may need a napkin. Just saying.

At one time, I was addicted to Cupcake Wars. I discovered cupcake flavors that I didn’t even know existed. 

When Were Cupcakes Invented?

Cupcakes were invented in the 1700s because they bake faster than a traditional cake. 

How Should I Eat A Cupcake?

Did you know they are different ways to eat a cupcake? I usually peel down one side of the liner and take a bite. However, there are many different ways to eat a cupcake.

Some people eat a cupcake sandwich style. They cut the cupcake in half and place the bottom part of the cupcake (cut side down) on the top part. That way the frosting is in the middle, kind of a like a whoopie pie. Makes sense, I guess.

I even read an article once about how the way you eat your cupcake reveals your personality. Well, okay.

What is the Most Popular Cupcake Flavor?

Well, it’s according to who you ask. Some polls have red velvet listed as the number one favorite. Others have chocolate or vanilla. 

Below, you will find my favorite and best cupcake recipes. These recipes are tried and true and have been made many times for parties and family get-togethers.  These are my favorite cupcakes for fall, summer and beyond. Enjoy!

I love mini cupcakes best of all! All of these flavors sound so interesting, I’ll have to make some of them. Pinning for future reference!

So many great looking cupcakes. It is so hard to choose the best one but the banana pudding and flamingo types look so good.

One thing I know is that cupcakes don’t go out of style ever. I love baking and these are my all time favorite to make for the kids. My kids love chocolate cupcakes and with my daughter birthday around the corner these would be a big hit.

Those cupcakes look amazing! I am not a good baker at all because I tend to burn things not limited to but including my hands! I’m want to give these a try. Pinned.

I always eat the icing, then pull down the paper! Laughing at the idea of pulling down the paper first. I love vanilla cupcakes that are done well.

Pam August 7, 2019 - 10:16 pm

I don’t know why but I have always preferred cupcakes to normal cake. I think it is the icing to cake ratio.

Ruth I August 8, 2019 - 8:36 am

These are all delicious looking cupcakes! The Peanut Butter Ball Cupcakes is on top of my list to try!

Rachel August 8, 2019 - 12:12 pm

If I am being honest, I think I prefer cake to cupcakes. I think they are usually much dryer.

Marysa August 8, 2019 - 3:05 pm

Wow, looking at this post makes me hungry! This would be such a fun thing to do after school with my kids!
