A few weeks back, Calie from Broccoli Cupcake threw a recipe contest as a battle to create the object that most internet searches led to her website. I'm excited to share the news that the recipe I created  is in the finals as a member of the top 3!!! So you want my take on a broccoli cupcake? Here's my recipe:

Hummus Frosted Broccoli Cupcakes:

  • 1 C flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • ¼ t salt
  • ½ t seasoning salt
  • 1 t thyme
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ C olive oil
  • ½ C milk
  • ¾ C finely chopped broccoli

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a muffin tin.

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In a mixing bowl beat the egg and olive oil until smooth. Add in chopped broccoli and continue to mix. Add dry ingredients, alternating with ½ C milk until just combined.

Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin and bake for 20-30 minutes depending on your particular oven. Cool for 5 minutes and remove from tin.

Frost using the hummus of your choice (I used plain hummus but red pepper hummus would be delicious too!). Sprinkle broccoli florets over the top.

Are you up for a savory snack?
