Decadent Brownie Cupcake

What happens when you cross a brownie and a cupcake? This amazingly moist and decadent dessert.

I have had this recipe for years, and have tweeked it enough I can comfortably call it my own.

When you peruse the ingredient list – it is a show stopper, but definitely worth having one…or two…

These are great for summertime as no frosting is needed, they are perfect just as they are. ENJOY!

  • Perfect combination and will say my girls love both cupcakes and brownies. So, they would most likely love these, too 🙂

  • Carrie,

    These cupcakes have to be the best. I have only seen this many eggs in two of my favorite desserts, cream brule and white chocolate bread pudding. The secret must be in all the eggs. I bet these cupcakes are more like silk.
    Thank you for sharing! I will definitely make these the next time I need cupcakes.
