If you saw my post on shoofly pie bars, you now know what shoofly pie is (if you didn’t see the post, have a look). I could say that shoofly pie cupcakes are my cupcake interpretation of shoofly pie. But, it’s more fun to say that shoofly pie cupcakes are the cupcake version of shoofly pie bars, which are the bar version of shoofly pie.
Shoofly pie cupcakes are sticky sweet cupcakes made with sugar syrup and brown sugar crumbs. They are best served warm with whipped cream or à la mode.
Shoofly Pie Cupcake Recipe
The recipe for my shoofly pie cupcakes comes from Sallie’s guest post on Not So Humble Pie. Here’s my adaptation of her recipe.
How Much Whipped Cream Do You Like?
In the photo at the top of this post, I featured the shoofly pie cupcake with a huge mound of whipped cream. I (and the majority of people in the Cupcake Project Facebook community who I polled) think it looks best this way. However, if simplicity is your style, check out the alternate presentation of these cupcakes with just a small dollop of whipped cream that I shared on the Cupcake Project Facebook page.
