  • Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
  • Bake at 350 F for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the cupcake clean.


The Ice Cream
I topped the cupcake with vanilla ice cream. Can anyone think of a flavor that would go better with pickle? The topic had never come up for me before and I figured vanilla would be a safe bet.
