Remember my best friend, Kyra? She helped me test and perfect my Double Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe. Well, somehow that girl has impeccable timing for recipe work! While awaiting the return of our boyfriends from Africa, she helped me be super productive by testing out a cupcake and frosting recipe. She also made sure I didn't feel left out and joined me when I ate a spoonful or three of frosting. What a great friend! I had fun working on these with her, which is one of the many reasons I adore this recipe!
These cupcakes are light and fluffy. The "buttercream" frosting is rich without being overpowering. Both components of this dessert are easy to make and *drum roll please* the recipe is only for SIX cupcakes! It may seem like a small feat to some, but I find that if I make 2 dozen cupcakes, I am tempted to eat all 2 dozen cupcakes. This amount is perfect to treat myself and Kyle, or a couple friends, for a few days. Of course, if you are in need of a larger batch you can always double or triple the recipe.
If you are still on the hunt for a Valentine's dessert, I recommend you give these a go!
