Have you had a cupcake today? Here is my honey cupcakes recipe; one made with honey and far less sugar. But, mind you, the sweetness is mostly in the glaze or the frosting. Read on….
Cupcakes have become a favourite today, as it is easy to prepare and bakes fast. They are mini cakes in a paper cup and most times come with a generous serving of frosting or layer of icing. Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes are the most popular, and such recipes are abundant online and in many printed cookbooks.
As a matter of fact, cupcakes are so loved that you can find cookbooks devoted specifically to cupcakes. Cupcakes are also a favourite to serve at for children’s birthday parties and baby showers.
Now, I am not a fan of frosting or even icing. At my age I don’t think I should be indulging too much sugar in such treats. That would explain the obvious absence of a “cupcake” on this website up until now.
Now, I do have a lot of muffins on the site, but they are all plain, except for this one. So, I guess, if this cupcake hadn’t icing on it could be called a muffin. This one is much lighter than most of my muffins.
Nevertheless, the glaze for this honey cupcake is also very simple. I purposely avoided the frosting because my family tends to waste the frosting on cakes. It usually goes down the drain. This one was delicious with a wonderful crunch. The instruction for the glaze follows after the recipe instructions.
Here is a delicious honey cupcake recipe.
Note: Generally, each paper cup can hold about 2 tbsp of mixture.
Note: The cupcakes have a somewhat golden look because of the amount of honey used in this recipe.
I found this to have a beautiful effect.
NOW FOR THE TOPPINGS
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. warm water.
Sift the powdered sugar into a bowl and mix it with the warm water. Mix to form a smooth soft paste. Spread the glaze onto each cooled cupcake with a blunt knife. You may add your favourite sprinklers, chopped nuts, or candy decorations.
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp . vanilla
