Sorry for the post being so late today, but I could not sleep last night which threw my whole day off :( My roommate encouraged me to eat an apple to help with my stomach pains, did you know that apples help with stomach issues? I didn't. Low and behold my stomach pains got less and less, and now I am feeling well enough to write a post! I even had to cancel a get together with a fellow baking enthusiast which really broke my heart, thankfully she is very understanding to the saga that is my health.
Yesterday I wrote about the candied pecans that were adorned atop Dan's birthday cupcakes, today we are going to get straight to the cake! When planning what type of cupcakes to make I asked my mother what are some of Dan's favorite flavors in a dessert. He is very similar to my nephew because he loves banana type desserts, I had made a banana cupcake before but wanted a more moist cupcake than previously produced. I found a recipe that had a good amount of bananas in the ingredients so I knew it wouldn't be dry at all, and of course it also included another delightful ingredient, pecans! Tomorrow's post will include the icing so you can recreate this delicious treat yourself, but for now we'll focus on the foundation of any cupcake ;)
