This time around I decided to make cupcakes instead of the 9-inch cake that the recipe will make. For me it's just easier to hand the dessert out (if we're not having a get together that day) when it's in cupcake form as opposed to slices of cake. Since this is a simple one layer cake with frosting, it was a perfect choice to bake in cupcake form. This recipe made 18 cupcakes.
The cake itself is really lovely.......tangy from the sour cream, with just a hint of spice from the cinnamon. Top that with a frosting that is essentially a dark chocolate pudding. Yum! I threw on some sprinkles, because honestly, who doesn't like sprinkles? And my two little guys are like moths to a flame when it comes to sprinkles.....they've been known to just ask for a bowl of sprinkles (have I already brought that up?).
Give this recipe a try when you want to have some delicious, but not fancy schmancy.
Check out A Little Bit of Everything for the recipe, and check out Club: Baked for the other bakers' results.....Enjoy!!
Oh, and P.S......I know I've mentioned my serious love of all things Baked.....but I thought I'd share this seriously dorky picture of myself from our recent trip to Charleston. The Baked guys have a bakery in Charleston, their only bakery outside of the original in Brooklyn. As soon as we made plans to go to Charleston, that was one of my top must-do's on our agenda when we got to the city. It was delicious (cannot wait to try making the Grasshopper Bars)!! I know I looked so silly being so excited for being there, but my awesome hubby totally indulged me and took a pic of me with all my yummies! Can't wait to make it to NYC and hit up the original!
