These are plain vanilla cupcakes that i saw her make on TV which are pretty much the same except the flavors. Nigella just mixes all the ingredients together but I am li'l finicky about my methods. It's ever-so-slightly longer but that definitely adds to the taste and texture of the cupcakes The sheer simplicity and versatility of this recipe has driven me to make these cupcakes countless number of times and they come out beautifully , always. I haven't included a recipe for an icing because you need to experience these cupcakes in their purest form , not camouflaged by oodles of sugary stickyness.

The Verdict: A friend once called them "Little Drops o' Heaven" and that they are. These cupcakes physically melt in your mouth and are so scrumptious that it cant even be expressed in words. Only my taste buds live to tell the tales of this legendary experience. Do join in.
