Not your average cupcake

Hello!  So I just got back from vacation and feeling a little guilty that I left my daughter at home with my mom.  I know every parent needs time to themselves, but I really missed her.  So I am trying to make up for it. 

First, I made cupcake pancakes.

Sorry for the picture quality. 

These are super simple.  Just make pancakes how you usually make them (I just use pancake mix), but you add your syrup in there.  1/4c. of maple syrup in your pancake mix.  Pour into sprayed cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Easy peasy!  My daughter really enjoyed them and ate them up!

Next I made meatloaf cupcakes....
quick and easy!

for the meatloaf all I use is 1 lb ground turkey, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 BBQ sauce, 1 box stuffing ( I use cornbread stuffing) and one egg.  mix together form little balls and plop in a muffin tin! (don't forget to spray!) Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. (if using turkey, make sure temp is 165 degrees)
I made homemade mashed potatoes, stuck it in zip lock back, snipped off the corner and pipped it on.  They came out super cute and super yummy!  Good for portion control as well.

yeah these werent a big hit with the kiddo.  She wasnt buying the whole cupcake thing! haha.  She'd rather regular frosting, not mashed potato frosting!

Anyone have any not your average cupcake recipes?

  1. ok those pancake cupcakes look really good! and i like the recipe for your meatloaf i might have to try it. I don't think the whole mashed potato frosting would go well with leah either lol love them though maybe it will work with jace when he's a lil older.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
