Vanilla Almond Cupcakuffins (or cupcake-muffins!). And What’s The Difference Between a Muffin and a Cupcake?

What is the real difference between a cupcake and a muffin?

Is it that a muffin is really a naked cupcake? Is it because there’s fruit in muffins and not cupcakes? Less sugar, since most muffins have tons of added sugar?

I don’t know the answer. Do you?

Maybe you can try out this recipe and let me know…and trust me, you’ll want to. Try them, that is.

The thing I do know about these little gems are that they are incredibly delicious, soft, fluffy, slightly sweet, naked, and outstanding. The cupcakuffins are p e r f e c t in every way. Passing for a muffin and can definitely be a cupcake, without any frosting, they’re wonderful and healthy.

I served these slightly warm and with sliced ripe strawberries. The combination was killer.

Cupcake tin-approved, make these now. If you want straight vanilla, make the originals I played this recipe off from, here.


Record for these cupcake/muffins in my house was one day. One day and they were all gone. All 12 gone between only four people. What will your record be?
