In a strange turn of events, it seems I have baked something with neither chocolate nor nuts. For those of you who are astonished, I think I may have redeemed myself by the presence of cream cheese frosting.
I am further redeemed by the perfection that is these cupcakes. Oh, my, but they’re good. Basically, these lovely little pound cakes are loaded with brown sugar, creating a wonderful caramel-like flavor. Then, they are topped off with an amazingly simple, delicious cream cheese frosting that features even more brown sugar.
It’s not often I make cupcakes. I can tell you, though, that these are some of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure to eat. If you’re a fan of brown sugar and cream cheese, I think you’ll agree.
