I can't remember if I've previously mentioned that my sister lent me this book (hi Dang, yup it's still with me! I love it and you are the best sister ever for giving, ahem, lending this to me. Haha!)
It's a charming book with scalloped pages and beautiful photos of the things you could dream up based on the recipes inside. I've tried the chocolate cake, the butter cake and the cheesecake recipes and I have loved drooling and cleaning my plate over each and every result.
(These images of the Miette cookbook are not mine. I got them from Google Images)The butter cupcakes are wonderful because I could really taste the butter. It was moist, not crumbly and light as air. I have used chocolated frosting, vanilla buttercream, strawberry buttercream and even cream cheese frosting, and the cupcakes tasted amazing no matter what kind of frosting I paired it with. It also tasted divine even without frosting! I mean, how often can you say that about cupcakes right?!
I use it all the time. Every couple of weeks my husband asks me to make it. And the longest it has stayed in our ref is two days. Seriously.
