My crafting and family life journal

It started snowing about 2pm this afternoon, which put me in the mood for some fresh baked cupcakes, but with the house projects on the agenda the recipe had to be simple, tasty, and able to stand on it’s own without icing of any kind (do not like to serve my family huge amounts of sugar and fat). The brown sugar cups cakes in this post meet all of my criteria.
