Cupcakes with a completely different twist on our taste buds.

Unconventional cupcakes have popped out likes mushrooms everywhere and to my experience, they are actually quite amazing. And when I say amazing, that goes both for aesthetics and flavor. All these new creative cupcakes are truly a must-try.

So I found 10 of these crazy cupcakes, and below are the recipes for each. I’ve actually tried 6 of 10 of them. And they are very very delish. I can’t wait to try the rest. I personally love the Avocado cupcakes and the Red Hot Cupcakes. Well the Avocado cupcakes take the number 1 spot for now. Until of course I could try the remaining recipes.

So try them out and tell me what your favorite is.

Check out the recipes below.


Avocado Cupcakes Recipe

c 1b

Ingredients:

3 c (360g) flour
6 Tbls (32g) unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 c (400g) granulated sugar
1/4 c (60ml) vegetable oil
1/2 c (120 ml) soft avocado, well mashed, about 1 medium avocado
2 Tbls white vinegar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 c (470ml) water

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Oil and line two 8 or 9-inch pans (I used two 6-inch cakes and made 6 cupcakes with the extra batter). Set aside.

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda set aside.

Whisk together the sugar, oil, mashed avocado, vinegar and vanilla, then add the water. Sift in the dry ingredients all at once, then whisk until smooth.

Pour batter into prepared tins and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cakes cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.

Avocado Buttercream Frosting 

Like I said, you can’t taste the avocado in this. It has a light citrus flavor (maybe… Orange?), but it’s not lemony – the juice keeps it from browning, so be sure that you don’t leave it out! It tastes like any other American-style buttercream, so be aware that it is quite sweet!

8 oz (225g) fresh avocado, about 2 small to medium, very ripe avocados
2 tsp lemon juice
1 lb (455g) powdered sugar, sifted (use more for a thicker frosting)
1/2 tsp vanilla

Peel and pit the avocados. Place the avocado meat into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment along with the lemon juice and beat until lightened in color and very well mashed, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl from time to time. Sift in the powdered sugar a little at a time and beat until smooth. Add the vanilla and mix to combine. If not using right away, store in the refrigerator.
