Sorry, I had a family catastrophe last night & an awful head exploding headache, then spent another 2 hrs changing our home phone number...not a good night icon_sad.gif

The offee is indeed supposed to be "toffee", and it does come from the banoffee pie. They look yummy Mel! I may have to wait till Thursday to try them! It was hard, I had 3 I wanted to post, but had to pick 1 icon_sad.gif

Thanks for posting the results so fast Mel and Jess. I might skip these. I love the idea of bananas and caramel but I don't care much for the biscuit type cupcakes. icon_smile.gif

Oh no Chass... sorry to hear that. Hope you're OK now!!

I had one of these this morning and have to say, just like a biscuit, they are better hot and fresh. Not that they were bad... just not as good. They really don't even remind me of a muffin honestly... I make banana bread and muffins but they come out more cakey than this. I almost wanna crack these open and pour gravy over 'em. Hehehe. But I don't know that the banana flavor would be so great with sausage. icon_rolleyes.gif

My 3YO ate one and he seemed to like them just fine!! He loves anything mommy makes really, so I didn't expect him to turn up his nose. Well, that, and I called it a cupcake, so he thought he was getting a serious treat!

So....based off what Mel said...I totally 100% cheated icon_biggrin.gif I took a yellow mix, threw in some brown sugar, some banana & all I had were some of that heath toffee topping that comes in a bag by the chocoalte chips....and mixed that up & baked it icon_biggrin.gif Smells good & tastes good, & definitely a cuppycake, and finished the topping correctly....very yum!

I think it's safe to pick a new submitter, Chass, if you want. icon_smile.gif Or at least start the pick a number thing. I think the interest is dying down for the CCCC but I'm still interested if everyone else is.

Ok, everyone pm a number between 1 & 300, I'll give it till Monday to get numbers, then pick a new one!!


The cupcakes made with the yellow cake, are definitely yummy....so, I'm thinking, follow the recipe for a breakfast cuppy, cheat for a dessert cuppy icon_biggrin.gif

I have a feeling there are lots of our cuppy buddies either on a weight loss plan or still trying to eat up left over desserts from the Holidays. I alos noticed that CC has been a little laid back since the holiday to, the problems with CC itself and also the threads have seemed a little slower then normal ( meaning peolpe chatting) Maybe thats why there is not to much interest yet.

Yah, don't get too discouraged yet... with all the downtime, etc. people are having trouble getting in and stuff, so it's not necessarily a disinterest! So Chass... little Miss Cheater Pants... hehehe... are the cuppies good today? I wish I had one! thumbs_up.gif I have a couple of the chocolate malt ones leftover from an order... I guess that will have to do!

Yeah!! I'm back in!! I didn't get a notice that you all resumed after the break~ CC has been so crazy for me lately....Chass! I know you're getting ready to pick the next one....was wondering, if I do your "100% cheated" version....does that still count? And if I use choc chips instead of caramels or toffee bits? I know it's not the same but I don't have either or the other. What do you guys think? Should I go ahead and try it or just wait until the next one??


Hope everyone had fabulous holidays!!! icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

Ah, Michelle, I'd just wait. We determined quickly that this one wasn't a pure winner, and if you change all the ingredients, it's not really like making this recipe. So just make one of your old faves until we get a new one. Just my opinion there of course, I don't mean to sound like I'm ordering you around!! NOW GO DO MY DISHES!! Hahahahaha!!!

Okay.... I just submitted by number for the next round.

I don't remember the initial rules though... does it have to be a scratch recipe or can it be a doctored mix?? Can it be an recipe with alcohol in it??

No rules on what to pick Mcdonald! We just ask that everyone goes by the original recipe the first try. I make a Black Russian cake with Vodka and Kahlua in it and it is so good! It is also a doctored mix! Cake Love uses alcohol a lot and it really brings a lot of flavor to the cakes.
