These cupcakes are absolutely FABULOUS!! They are made with whole wheat flour and yogurt to make them a bit more healthy. They come out so moist and the salty caramel drizzle just seals the deal. These will become a staple in our home.
The basis of this recipe came from this cake at A Hint of Honey . I really only make cakes for birthdays, and I wanted to be able to put it in the kids lunches. So I made some alterations to make it work for me. The results are really very yummy. Such a nice recipe for Fall when apples are in season.
My friend Cindy shared this lovely recipe with me. My kids LOVE them. They will be so happy to come home from school today and be able to eat them. I used the same recipe to make cupcakes with the frosting on the inside. This way I can send them in the kids’ lunches.
I know, I know, I’m in a mini cupcake craze. I like them because they are: easy to make, easy to freeze, easy to control portions, great in kids lunches and provide a little sweetness to my day. These were tasty little chocolate bites. They are made with pumpkin in place of the oil. The overall taste is chocolate goodness. Continue reading

This is one of my go-to recipes whenever I have bananas that are at the overripe stage. They are easy to make and freeze well after the icing has set. I like to wrap them individually and then store them in a gallon size freezer bag. When the kids pack their lunches, they just pull one out of the freezer. They defrost by lunch time. I love the glaze, so I usually double it when I make muffins. You can double the recipe and bake it in a large jelly roll pan. I have taken these lovely muffins to many gatherings and received rave reviews each time. I’ve even tried them with 1/2 wheat flour. Either way they are delicious! Continue reading
These cute Monkey cupcakes stole the show when I made them for my sons class. They were easy to make and the kids loved them. Make whatever flavor of cupcakes you like. I’m sure you could use a number of different food items to create the details. I used Lady Finger cookies cut in half for the ears, Nilla wafers for the mouth area and MnM’s for the eyes. I made the tuft of hair with frosting. Continue reading
