Guest Post: Maple Syrup Cupcakes

There are so many ways to make something sweet. Sugar is the king and the most common. You’ll see high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners in a number of commercial goods. Honey and agave syrup are becoming more common in recipes but not much beats maple syrup. Here is a guest post from Jacinta. Take a look….

When I first made these cupcakes, I was pleasantly surprised at how simple and tasty they were. Made regular-sized ones, as well as mini-versions so I could share them with my colleagues. All of them enjoyed it, and loved the whiff of maple syrup – it reminded them of yummy breakfast pancakes. 😉

Since then, I’ve included this into Bren and my regular breakfast staples, and we love it warmed up each time. I like doing up an easy homemade (healthy) berries jam to go along with it as well, so that the tartness of the jam complements the simple cupcake – just mix a cup of your favourite berries + 1 tbsp of chia seeds + 1 tsp of honey and blend! Have it set overnight in the fridge. Naturally, this jam keeps best only within 3-5 days.

Baking can be so therapeutic, and when I can share the joy of it with others, it really makes my day!

    Nothing like maple syrup! Thankfully, I live in the maple syrup capital of Canada. 🙂

      Uderdish, what do you consider the maple syrup capital of Canada is? I’m curious, as I to am Canadian!

      This recipe looks great….and I will definitely try it out as I love cupcakes. But where is the frosting? Would this not be considered a muffin, especially if you are eating it for breakfast with jam? 😉

        I live in Lanark Country (rural Ottawa area) bordering Quebec. I see you’re from Nova Scotia – an absolute beautiful area of our country!
