Salted Caramel Cupcakes
I would like to start out by saying this is possibly my favorite cupcake ever. I don't want to oversell it, but seriously, these are amazing. More specifically, the frosting. Oh sweet Lord, the frosting.
I lump this all together and label it as a salted caramel flavor because it's easier than saying "brown sugar, caramel, salty, butterscotch" cupcake. But it's got all of those going on. And it's amazing. The cupcake is moist (that word again, ugh) and the frosting, did I mention the frosting? Thicker than normal frosting and has a flavor that I still can't accurately describe except to say, "yum."
In full disclosure, I've made these cupcakes 3 times in the last 3 months and have not managed to take photos of them for the site. Newborns are demanding. But I have managed to eat more than I care to admit. I even took the frosting off a cupcake that sat out too long and ate that. Don't judge me until you've had this frosting. No regrets, I'd do it again.
You need to make these cupcakes and then immediately let me know what you think. Follow me on Instagram @lolosdesserts and tag me when you make a Lolo's recipe, I'd love to see your creations!
