Top 10 List: Best Cupcake Recipes

The Best Cupcake Recipes on Brown Eyed Baker - 10 of my favorite cupcakes, all in one place!

[We continue to update the “Top 10” series of posts with cupcakes!]

Cupcakes have taken on a life of their own over the last ten years or so. Chic little shops have popped up everywhere, there are numerous TV shows based on the handheld confections, and the flavor combinations seem endless. Aside from two cupcake shops (Baked & Wired in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC and a now-closed cupcake shop in Delray Beach, FL), I have yet to be blown away by any cupcake from any of those chic little shops. Most times I find the cupcakes to be rather dry and the frosting just okay.

As a result, I revel in making cupcakes at home. All kinds of cupcakes – chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin, red velvet, boozy – it’s all fair game. Below is an updated list of my 10 favorite cupcake recipes… Enjoy!
