Recipes for Cupcakes from Around the World

I am seeking recipes for cupcakes from ALL OVER THE WORLD. I work with seniors in their activities department and have a monthly 'Cooking With Stephanie' activity and thought that cupcakes from around the globe would be interesting since a lot of the residents are from different backgrounds. Thank you!!

Hi, Stevi --

I'm guessing that you'd have to find CAKE recipes that you could adapt as cupcakes. There must be lots of those that you could google.

good luck,

Nancy in Florida

Dark chocolate would be Mexico, where it was first discovered! Norway would be berries, Holland would be cheese, Africa would be lime, India would be sweet raisin curry, Hawaii would be pineapple. I'm sure you'll have a world globe with yarn running from muffin to country. Tahiti would be coconut, China would be poppyseed...

go to They have a cake / cupcake section with MANY ideas. They have at least one for every letter of the alphabet. You could probably pull some ideas from that.
