One unexpected perk to giving up sweets for Lent: when you can only have them one day a week (Sunday), you don't want to mess around - only the good stuff will do. Unless otherwise detained, I hope to make some fabulous desserts every weekend of Lent through Easter. This weekend included my secret Raspberry Brownies (my brother's request), and these cupcakes.
A few months ago, a lady at my church brought these to a Community Sunday dinner. After one bite, my brother ordered me to get the recipe from her by any means necessary. Thankfully, this recipe is online, so force (ahem) persuasion was not needed.
Mixing the filling, and stuffing the cupcakes with it were a ticklish business, so I only have a photo of the cupcakes after stuffing.

Definitely above the average dessert, and well worth the effort.
