So last week, I had a really bad day.
And Husbear made me breakfast, for dinner. My FAVORITE DINNER OF ALL TIME.

Well today, Husbear had a bad day.
So what did i do?
I made him breakfast, for dessert.
Here's what ensued:

DomestiKatie's version of's
French Toast Cupcakes!:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and then cooled
2 eggs
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup milk

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature
3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup

1. Preheat oven to 350'F and line baking pan with paper liners.
2. Mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Make sure the butter is cool or you’ll have scrambled eggs.
4. Whisk in maple syrup and then alternate between whisking in flour mixture and milk. Make three additions of flour mix and two of milk. Beat until smooth.
5. Scoop batter into prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown and tops spring back when lightly touched.
6. Cool the cupcakes on a rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.

Place the cream cheese, syrup, and butter in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, 30 seconds. Stop the machine. Add the con­fectioners' sugar, a little at a time, blend­ing with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is well incorporated, 1 minute. Add the cinnamon, then increase the mixer speed to medium and blend the frost­ing until fluffy, 1 minute more.

and Voila! French Toast Cupcakes!


  1. yum. did he like them or what? did YOU like them?

  2. he LOVED them!
    they made the whole house smell so incredible.
    i also loved them, but that was a given, because of my obsession with anything breakfast.

  3. You are a scream! You and Husbear have the right idea...just keep meeting each other's needs...that's the recipe for success in any relationship. Words to live by: "Put your Partner first".

    Of course it took me a few nasty tries to figure that one out, thanks to Gloria Steinem and my militant feminist 70's, but the good thing is that now all my younger female kin can benefit from my hard-earned lessons in life! And I shall benefit from your recipes and zest for life!
    Love ya, Katers!
