Cupcake Recipes: Where did they come from?

Who really knows how cupcakes originated? Right now, two possible theories are circulating in the food world. Both theories are based on cupcake recipes found in cookbooks from eras long ago.

The first theory is that cake batter was cooked in teacups and other small containers since it took such a long time to cook cakes in hearth ovens. The small teacups cut the cooking time of cakes dramatically.

The second theory is based on how the ingredients in the cupcake recipes were measured. (1 cup flour, 2 cups sugar, etc.)

However they first came about, these wonderful creations we call cupcakes are still near and dear to everyone's heart whether we're young or just young at heart.
