Easy Cupcake Recipes

G'Day and welcome to Cupcake Recipes Australia. As a father and husband with a young family, my wife and I have begun sourcing our own cupcake recipes and thought it would be a great resource to share online.  Hopefully you can make some of the recipes to share with your family and friends, and you too take some value from all our research into the delightful world of cupcakes.

In my own experience, I have found making cupcakes is a great way to spend some meaningful time with my daughters doing a creative activity with some instant rewards - the cupcakes!  And they make great Markets and Stallholders Ideas.

Set aside an hour or so and you too can follow our easy recipes to make some simple cupcakes for all Australian families.
Oh, by the way, when we source a cupcake recipe we will acknowledge the author with a link to their site or by referencing the cookbook itself.  If we have failed to reference a recipe of yours, please let us know and we will rectify the oversight.
