National Cupcake Day

Happy National Cupcake Day!!!

My new favorite holiday.


In honor of National Cupcake Day, I thought I’d post a few of our favorite cupcake recipes here on Domestic Pursuits.

Happy Cupcaking!!

These Chocolate Peppermint Brownie Cupcakes would be absolutely wonderful this time of year.  They are minty and moist and fabulously rich – perfect to bring to a holiday party!  If you prefer a lighter chocolate cupcake with a minty touch, try these Chocolate Mint Cupcakes.


I personally love these Chocolate Whiskey Cupcakes, which involve my favorite Irish trio – Irish Whiskey, Irish Cream, and Guinness.  Enjoy them on St. Patty’s day, or really any day where you feel like embracing your Irish side.  Like National Cupcake Day.


This is one of our favorite recipes here on Domestic Pursuits – Oreo Cupcakes - they are seriously delicious.  We both have a weakness for Oreos here on Domestic Pursuits and these cupcakes definitely indulge this fondness of ours.  I actually think it would be pretty neat to try them with the seasonally distributed mint Oreos one finds at the supermarkets this time of year – or with the similar product distributed at Trader Joe’s, which frankly I think I may like even better.

Finally, I just purchased more vanilla beans so that I could go ahead and make these Vanilla Bean Cupcakes again.  (Among other soon-to-be-posted Vanilla-y treats….stay tuned for homemade marshmallows!!  And maybe some sea salt caramels too.)
