Yup, you read it correctly–cupcakes–not muffins. I’m a huge fan of zucchini bread and zucchini muffins, but they can be a bit heavy, y’know? If I’m remembering correctly, a Facebook friend found this recipe and posted it. I bookmarked it and then made them for another friend’s birthday. Yup, they are birthday-worthy! Light. Fluffy. Decadent flavor combo. Super pretty. Spiced Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. (Which I swirled onto the cupcakes through a hole cut in the corner of a ziploc bag and then topped with orange zest.)
I’m referring you back to the original recipe for Ginger-Zucchini Cupcakes with Spiced Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. I made them exactly as the writer of the Daily Crave–see my blogroll–you’ll want to follow them, too!
I’m not gonna say these are healthy…exactly. But they do have zucchini in them….and orange zest….and cream cheese is technically a dairy, right?! Don’t make them because they’re healthy-esque, make them because they’re yummy!
