Not all homemade cupcakes have to be sweet to be delicious, as this delicious spiced zucchini version by blog Cooking Classy proves. The cupcake is filled with shredded zucchinis and spices and is topped with a decadent cream cheese frosting.
Mixing sweet and savory flavors is a great way to create a dessert item that has a bold flavor profile and offers contrasting tastes. These cupcakes are made with shredded zucchini that is chopped up very finely so you can hardly see it in the dough and added spices such as nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cinnamon. To add some contrasting sweetness, the cupcake is topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting with added vanilla and pecans.
