Is My Blog Burning? IMBB 13: Cupcakes and Muffins Galore!


Update posted late Sunday, March 27th: I wasn't at my computer most of the weekend, and there were a few late or inadvertently omitted entries waiting in my mailbox. They've now all been posted I think, bringing the total to 89 entries. Wow.

It seems that this month's IMBB theme really struck a chord with many food bloggers, since there are, if I've managed to count correctly, 84 89 entries! Several people made more than one muffin or cupcake too, so there are 100 or so different cupcakes and muffins to try.

It's impossible for me to pick any favorites out of the wonderful entries. I'll be enjoying many, many hours trying out the different recipes.

Thanks to everyone who participated! I did get a bit overwhelmed by the number of submissions (to put it mildly), so my apologies for not replying to all your individual emails. If your entry is not listed, please let me know and I'll correct that ASAP.

And once again, a big thanks goes out to Alberto for starting IMBB. Every IMBB allows people to discover new food blogs and re-visit old favorites, and that's just a great thing. Also big thanks to Ronald for helping everyone keep track of all the food blogging events out there.

I've grouped the entries into groups by general category: sweet cupcakes, sweet muffins, savory muffins (and a couple of savory cupcakes), and last but not least, cupcakes that are probably not edible. So without further ado, here are the links to all the cupcakes and muffins.

Part One: Cupcakes

Part Two: Sweet Muffins

Part Three: Savory Muffins (or Cupcakes)

And finally, the not-quite-edible department...

Wow-- what a lot of entries! Thank you very much, Maki, for hosting and compiling the list of yummy recipes!

Thank you for hosting and kudos for the recap! You really picked a good one...

I agree that the theme was great. Thanks for hosting, Maki.

Yes, the theme was GREAT. If it weren't for the cupcake theme, I wouldn't have been able to spontaneously join the event at 8 PM, the day of the deadline. It was super-fun! Thanks for taking the time to put together the humongo list of entries!

Great wrap-up Maki! I can appreciate the amount of work you put in to categorise and link the mammoth number of entries!

So many great recipes here that I'll be sure to bookmark this link for future reference the next time I have a muffin cravin'!

I am so unlucky to have missed a IMBB category that would have really inspired me to participate in my first one. Though I am incredibly lucky that you have linked so many fabulous recipes I am sure to use this fantastic resource in the future.

Thanks for hosting this editions IMBB. I think so far this is my favourite. I will surely be enjoying surfing and trying out so many muffins/cupcakes. Love love them lots. :)

I can't wait to try some of these! I actually made some chicken pot pie muffins last night that might even fit the category. It's like food blog synergy. I talked about them here:

Just a day too late to submit. Ah well.

Nice blog with warming wunderful stuff and ideas


Hi Maki,
It's great indeed, but it seems my entry got lost to, here it is:

And a great Easter to everyone!

Hi Maki,

great recipes, I just love it


Hi Maki,
I've recently started visiting your food blog and I think its great! What a great IMBB is really inspiring me to do more baking. :)

As I was travelling I wasn't able to post my entry til today. I hope it's ok. It's a slightly unusual entry but I hope very worthy. They were made by my 8 year old niece.

thanks for hosting


Happy Easter Maki! This has been an exciting IMBB, mainly because I've never baked muffins, or cupcakes before.

Thank you for complimenting my blog's name - The Pilgrim's Pots and Pans. My friend and blog host thought of that, partly to force me to start writing. I don't regret giving in, and what an adventure it is!

Hi Maki

WOW!! What a lot of great entries! Truly an inspiring theme. I just got back from a weekend away and will have to trawl through the recipes - but I think it is safe to say that my muffin pan is going to be kept busy for quite a while!!

Thanks again for hosting

Thanks everyone for all the great comments, and of course for the entries! I'm not going to edit the original post any more, but if anyone wants to leave a comment / link here or trackback to this entry with more muffin or cupcake recipes, please do so. This has been quite a special IMBB!
