I love the holidays, but as I’m now living in Scotland I don’t get to properly celebrate Thanksgiving anymore. To get in the spirit, I decided to do a bit of baking. These Maple Pecan Cupcakes with maple syrup buttercream icing and caramelised nuts are another recipe from the Primrose Bakery (see the vanilla ones I made here) and are amazingly tasty. Definitely a good replacement for traditional pecan pie. The recipe was the winner of a competition to raise money for the bakery’s Wellbeing of Women charity and you can find it here.
