You guys, this is somehow the FIRST paleo cupcake recipe I’ve ever posted on Bakerita. Or now that I think about it, it’s the first paleo cake of any sort that I’ve posted.

Somehow, when Bakerita officially went from being full of butter, flour, and sugar, to being fully gluten-free and refined sugar-free, cakes and cupcakes got lost in the shuffle. [Read more…]

If you like Cheerios, you'll love these Honey Nut Cheerio Cupcakes! A soft honey cupcake made with cereal infused milk is topped with a Honey Nut Cheerio buttercream to create a treat you'll love.I’ve been toying with the idea of these cupcakes for a while now. I’ve recently rediscovered my love of cereal, and Honey Nut Cheerios came back as a major favorite. One day while eating a bowl of them, I decided Honey Nut Cheerios crushed up in frosting is probably something that should happen.

And if that Honey Nut Cheerio buttercream ended up slathered on top of some subtly honey flavored, soft, moist cupcakes, well – that would be a good thing, right?  [Read more…]

They're super moist and tender thanks to the pumpkin and carrot, and the cinnamon makes the cream cheese frosting taste even more delicious.These past couple of days have realllyyy felt like fall. As in, rain has not stopped pouring for more than a few minutes, leaves are all over the ground, school is in serious high-stress mode, and all I want to do is bake with pumpkin, cinnamon, and apples. Good thing, because today’s recipe covers 2 of those ingredients!

I’m seriously an addict for all things fall-scented, and have been constantly burning a candle this fall. I’m a major candle addict, and have one burning pretty much always in my room. There’s just something so comforting about walking into a room that smells delicious! [Read more…]

Let’s talk about life right now, guys. It’s been pretty awesome.

First off, I was slightly nervous going into this summer, living in Washington state for the summer instead of San Diego. Let’s be real: it’s really, really hard to beat a San Diego summer, especially for someone who has always spent their summers there. Perfect weather, beautiful beaches…it’s really summer paradise. So, I was pleasantly surprised with Washington being absolutely beautiful this summer, with only like, 2 days of rain the whole time I’ve been here. It’s so nice! I love being able to hang out by the water and go on walks and just be outside…when I’m not at work, that is. [Read more…]

Whew, this post has been a long time coming. I posted a picture of these cupcakes on my Instagram what feels like forever ago, and I’ve had people asking me to post the recipe since!

However, I am a college student, and around here, it’s finals season. Unfortunately for both me and all of you, that means baking has been pushed to the back burner to make room for business law, international management, spanish, and economics.

Yeah, I prefer baking too.

It’s so weird that winter is technically starting to come to an end, because that means soon it’ll be time to start abandoning SUPER chocolatey desserts and embracing fruity ones, not that that is necessarily a bad thing.

I mean, embracing spring did give us Lemon Meringue Cupcakes, Blueberry Oatmeal Crumb Bars, and this Summer Berry Tart, and there’s nothing even remotely bad about any of those.

However, I’m still in winter mode, so I’m giving you more chocolate…and I will keep giving you chocolate, until someone tells me not to. And trust me…if you make these cupcakes, you’ll be glad I did. [Read more…]
