Recipe number one has been completed as promised. Now, I need to get my butt in gear with the remaining fifty-nine recipes!
Again, this recipe is from Anne Bryn's: Cupcakes: From the Cake Mix Doctor.
I came upon this recipe from my friend Jerome who had brought this book home from work and said I should photocopy a few of the recipes. Well, I didn't. I went straight out to Barnes & Noble with my Grandmother and she purchased it for me. This is the first recipe I have made from the book and I have owned it for a year. I am assuming I strayed away from this book for so long because I try to bake all my cakes from scratch. However, circumstances have slightly changed around here with the arrival of Payton so this recipe was perfect for my first bake since her arrival.
This little cake definitely packs in the butterscotch flavor, bringing back memories from childhood and honestly this cake would win over any child because it is very sweet and moist. My friends stated that this is the best cupcake they have ever eaten; sadly, I have to disagree (sorry guys). It is good, don't get me wrong, I think the frosting would taste better on a homemade chocolate cake.
Doug rating: (Doug if you read this before I tell you, I am asking you to give me an honest opinion of every cupcake I bake since you'll be more honest than Jim. Also, since the office will be receiving all these cupcakes I figured you should work for them. ;) )
