Mocha Valencia Cupcakes from One Bowl Baking. I made another recipe from that cookbook about a month ago and completely forgot to blog about it - Apple Crisp Mix-in-the-Pan Bars.
The entire concept of One Bowl Baking is that you don't use more than one bowl, targeted at making preparation and cleanup simpler. I'm definitely guilty of destroying my entire kitchen for one recipe, so I liked the creativity Yvonne Ruperti used in developing these recipes. This particular recipe has you do most of the mixing in the 9x13 pan the bars are going to be baked in. While I appreciate the attempt, I am just not coordinated enough to mix in a shallow pan without getting flour everywhere, so next time I would mix them in a bowl.
The end result was tasty, and I got to use local Mutsu apples from Flat Rock, NC. This was my first apple recipe of the season!
Full disclosure: I did receive a copy of this cookbook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I picked out recipes to try and posted about them here, as well as reviewing the entire cookbook in GoodReads.
