Honey Cupcakes

My health has not been good again recently, hence some of you might have noticed my lack of updates and I have not been visiting blogs for a while. :(

I saw these Honey Cupcakes at Small Small Baker some time back. It is strangely amazing that how one could miss a wonderful recipe while reading the book until you encounter the same recipe again much later at baking blogs. That goes the same for this Honey Cupcakes recipe.

I wish all readers a Happy New Year and hope that 2011 will be a great year ahead for all of us!! :)

Thanks to Small Small Baker for sharing the recipe. :)
