CUPCAKE WEEK: THURSDAY
One of the best things about cupcakes in my opinion is that they come in so many different flavours and varieties. I get great enjoyment out of trying some of the most unusual flavours I can find and it appears you do too because you’ve been sending them to me. I thought I’d share some with you here.
If you make any of these, please comment and let me know how they were!
Liquorice and Peppermint
This recipe was recommended to me by Kate Evans and is from a brilliant blog called Kayotic Kitchen.
Nicki, author of www.cardiffbites.blogspot.com sent me this recipe along with the one below. Tried and tested!
Yes, that’s right, bacon! Another one from Nicki, author of Cardiffbites. Read about her bacon experiments here and follow her on Twitter- Cardiffbites
Amy Daniel of Bonjour Cupcakes has also sent me a bacon recipe…
Meatloaf cupcakes with Mash Potato Frosting
Another one from Amy Daniels of Bonjour cupcakes. This one is seriously weird. if you give it a try I would love to know how it turns out.
Potato and 5 spice
This is a weird offering from Natalie Wherlock. The details are on her excellent blog- http://natsinnarth.wordpress.com/
Parsnip and Maple Syrup
This recipe is from Tereri James Jones. She made these cakes and put them on Twitter. The recipe is for a big cake but Tereri made it into cupcakes. I’ve had a go at these myself and they are delicious!
Beer and Sauerkraut Fudge cupcakes
This disgusting little number has been found by Sarah Williams of The Cakehouse. Yuck! It’s from the Foodnetwork.
Apple-Spice cupcakes with Walnuts and Blue Cheese
Another recipe from Sarah Williams but this one sounds quite nice…
Sweet Potato Cider Cupcakes with Marshmallow icing
A strange combination I’d say but it might be nice. Thanks again to Sarah from The Cakehouse.
And a few I’ve found myself…
Beer Cheese Cupcakes
This recipe is from the site BeerAdvocate.com
This sounds pretty gross… It was ‘weird recipe of the day’ on ilikefood.com.
Please add any more that you find by adding a comment. I’d also be really interested to know whether you have tried any of these concoctions.
