Eggless Butterscotch Cupcakes Recipe

I’ve been doing a lot of baking.

A lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot!

Some are keepers while some never see the light of day on this site.

Thankfully, these easy, eggless Butterscotch Cupcakes are delicious and I want to share them with y’all! :) Eggless Butterscotch Cupcakes Recipe

Did I mention I got a new camera? Yes I did.

Did I also mention I am clueless on how to take a good picture with that camera? Naah, I didn’t tell you.

But its obvious, isn’t it?

I know it takes practice blah blah blah… But isn’t a DSLR supposed to make my cupcakes look a 100 times tastier than they look? :P And in this case, its just doing the opposite!

Never mind… I’m telling ya, and you’ll believe me because the 270 recipes I’ve posted before this cupcake recipe were successes. So when I say this recipe is good, it reeeeeaallyy is!
