Martha has come through! If you read my last Martha cupcake post you may recall that I was on the verge of breaking ties with Martha and her cupcake book but these pumpkin cupcakes with its browned butter glaze has put us back on solid ground. Did you catch that? Browned butter glaze? Yes? It’s even better than it sounds but honestly, the pumpkin cupcakes were wonderful on their own. They were moist and tender but not overly so. Darn near perfect.
Monica and I have been baking from Martha’s book for a few months now but this go round Babygirl actually whipped these up Friday night pretty much all by herself. We made four mini bundts and six cupcakes which we left until the morning to glaze.
No lie. I glazed (Ha, if you can call it that.) them Saturday morning and by that night they were gone. All gone. We’re still wondering were they all.
Oh, yeah, my comment about the “glazing”? Martha’s “glaze” was more like frosting and even when I added more cream to thin it out it was still thick. Check out my bundts. I seriously stink at glazes. I either make them too thin or too thick which wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t figure it out until after I poured it on.
