National Vanilla cupcake day: History and Recipe

What can be more satisfying than a sweet personalized vanilla cupcake with your favourite toppings? Vanilla is one of the most used flavours in our food which can be collaborated with anything to produce delicious results. National Vanilla cupcake day marked in the US is just the right day to indulge in the goodness of this dessert.

Cupcakes are also known as 'fairy cakes' as it is believed that small fairies will come and eat these small cakes. The presence of cupcakes can be traced back to 1796 when a recipe notation for a cake to be baked in small cups was written in American Cookery (by Amelia Simmons). As learnt, the earliest known documentation of the term cupcake was in 1828 in Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats in Eliza Leslie’s Receipts cookbook.

If you are planning to mark the day, you must make good use of your oven/microwave and bake some lovely cupcakes for your loved ones.
