National Cupcake Day and Cupcakes History.
During the 17th & 18th centuries, cupcakes were baked and enjoyed most certainly. And most likely relate with English Fairy Cakes, it was not revealed until 1796 in a cookbook written Amelia Simmons named American Cookery. But the recipe is not about cupcake it’s about a cake baked in small cups. The original recipe for these cup size cakes called for half a pound butter, two pounds flour, rose water, cinnamon, nutmeg, empties and one glass of wine.
The Book “Seventy-Five Receipts for Cakes, Pastry, and Sweetmeats” wrote by Eliza Leslie in 1828. The book also contained a small cake recipe. But this size is not referred to a cupcake. But it is known as the first reference for cupcakes.
The cupcake started to evolve during the 19th century. It begins as a small size cake which ingredients measured through a standard cup, named Cupcake. The name cupcake indicated bakers how to measure the ingredients for cake by using a standard cup. Seems like a method of pound cake that indicate the bakers how to measure the ingredients for pound cake. In time, they known and famous as 1, 2, 3, 4 cakes sue to their recipe that contained 4 ingredients. One cup butter, two cups sugar, three cups flour, and the last one is 4 eggs. These yellow cakes are lighter like a lighter pound cake then the modern cupcake and plain. However, these lighter weight and small cakes did not look like an original cupcake, like today’s modern cupcakes. That time these cakes are larger but after some time they transformed into a cup-sized cake that called cupcake nowadays.
