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.
Wheat (and other grains) is the basis for any home storage system and is of course very nutritious. It contains high amounts of protein, calcium, niacin, riboflavin and thiamin. When it is sprouted, it also contains vitamins A and C in increased amounts. Not all wheat is the same however. Even the hard red or white wheat comes in different qualities and packaging. A good price does not always guarantee a good product. You also have to add in the cost of packaging. Wheat in buckets or cans will cost you more, but will store better in the long run. Try the Hard White wheat as an alternative to the hard red. If it is packaged and stored well, its shelf life and nutritional value is the same as the hard red wheat. We like it better as it is lighter in color and milder in flavor.

My family loves these! We make several different variations. One day a friend and I made six different batches together. We individually wrapped them and divided them up. They freeze really well and are great in kids (or adults) lunches. The are very easy to make too. Continue reading
