Can't make it to Kentucky for the Derby? Put on your prettiest hat and make these cupcakes inspired by Mint Juleps. They have a fair amount of Bourbon, but not nearly enough to taste exactly like a mint julep- just enough to make them for the adults only. And no matter who wins the race, I BET you'll enjoy them!

These are chocolate cupcakes with chocolate chips. They are flavored with orange juice; I just love the taste combo of chocolate and orange! To stay on the healthy side of things, they only use 3 T. oil for fat. And besides...we NEED the bioflavanoids in chocolate, right? Er, uh, or whatever those health people said.
I was cooking with a friend one day when we had a hankering for cheesecake. The only problem was that my favorite cheesecake recipe took all night to set. To fix the time problem, we came up with the genius idea of baking them in cupcake form so they would cool faster. It turned out fabulously and the cupcakes make perfect individual servings to serve at parties or after dinner.
Sometimes I don't do everything from scratch... This is a quick way to whip up a wonderfully lemony tasting cupcake in just a few moments and not a lot of mess! Everyone just loved the Lemoncello Cream so I am posting the recipe for others who enjoy sophisticated but simple recipes. I did not care for the canned frosting, but it tasted much better the second day after the flavors mingled.
These are sooooo good! No exaggeration. The topping is light and fluffy and not overly sweet, and you would never know that the cupcakes were vegan. The recipe come from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Once you taste these cupcakes, there will be no doubt that these can take over the world! The mousse topping makes enough for probably 2 dozen cupcakes, so go ahead and double the cupcake recipe...they are sure to disappear in no time. Preparation time doesn't include the 1 hour refrigeration time for the mousse.
From Simple and Delicious magazine Sept 2007 - submitted by M. Wiebe. A quick and easy cupcake to throw together that is different from the usual white cupcake. Kids seem to love these. (Prep time does not include time it will take for cupcakes to cool completely).
The surprise is a chocolate egg baked inside the cupcake! Yum! These cupcakes are so pretty, especially when you ice them with pastel colors for Easter or Spring. I got this from an old Woman's World magazine.
This recipe by Lorie Roach was featured on the Ultimate Recipe Showdown and won the cupcake category.It makes a lot of buttercream icing, so next time I think I will double the amount of cupcakes. I used a meat marinade injector which allows you to use all of the milk mixture. These do take quite a bit of time to make, but they are addicting!
