Buttermilk Pancake Cupcakes
A couple of months ago, I downloaded a cupcake e-book and finally got around to trying this recipe from it. These cupcakes started with a batch of blueberry preserves, which I made for the filling. Next, the batter for the Buttermilk Pancake Cupcakes, which is in fact like pancake batter, very lean and light. Finally, the cupcakes are topped with a maple buttercream. I suppose that these cupcakes are like dessert for breakfast. All they need is a side of bacon.
All in all, despite some enthusiastic commentary about them, I'm not sure I'm 100% sold on them, probably because the cupcake texture wasn't too cakelike. Still, the combination of flavors and textures is pretty good.
