I go crazy with elaborate projects sometimes (see my Homemade Lucky Charms for a prime example). But, it’s always nice to have a few one bowl recipes on hand to quickly whip together. Despite the gourmet sound of a pine nut cupcake, these pine nut cupcakes fall into the dump and mix category of cupcakes. Remember, easy doesn’t mean any less tasty!
These pine nut cupcakes taste nutty and familiar, yet unexpected (pine nut is hardly a staple cupcake flavor). They have an occasional crunch from the whole pine nuts mixed into the batter and the tart, sweet finish of raspberry cream cheese frosting.
If you don’t want to splurge on pine nuts, you can make this recipe using any nuts and nut butter.
