The queen of cupcake modification Stefani, from the beloved blog Cupcake Project, created these eyebrow-raising Apricot Couscous Cupcakes. The curious blogger mused over what would happen if she swapped flour for couscous in her usual cupcake recipe. The result of this experiment was a batch of tantalizing, textured beauties, which are unlike any cupcake you've ever bitten into before.

Comprised of apricot-scented couscous baked into a cake, these Apricot Couscous Cupcakes are taken to the next level with a healthy dollop of apricot-streaked cream cheese frosting. To give the cakes a final flourish, Stefani scattered couscous rolled in cinnamon on top. The perfect treat for those watching their refined flour intake, these Apricot Couscous Cupcakes beg to be experienced.

Odd but delicious, these Apricot Couscous Cupcakes are sure to surprise you.
