Cupcakes were first described in 1796 in American Cookery by Amelia Simmons. It was described as “a light cake to bake in small cups”. The first documented time the term “cupcake” was used was in 1828 in Receipts a cookbook by Eliza Leslie. They are called cupcakes because before muffin tins were used, cupcakes were baked in individual cups like ramekins, molds, or pottery cups.
There are so many times I want cupcakes, but most recipes create a dozen or two dozen cupcakes. As much as I love cupcakes, those sizes are for parties. I enjoy making small batches of cupcakes I can have as a treat. Creating seven seemed like a good choice. Seven is a lucky number in many cultures. Please enjoy this small batch cupcake recipe!
