Brown Butter Carrot Cake Cupcakes
I got this cookbook as a gift for my birthday and have been looking for an opportunity to break into it. My birthday is in September so I have been seriously slacking! While the table of contents is stuffed with iconic desserts, they are far from standard. I thought I was getting myself into a basic carrot cake recipe, but after reading it through, I could tell it was going to be a wild cake batter. These cupcakes have toasted pecans, browned butter, and a cream cheese frosting made with from-scratch vanilla pudding. This is not your bubbie's carrot cake. I can't wait to make something else from this awesome cookbook.
