Philadelphia, PAThe Best Brownie Cupcakes - Cupcakes have gone beyond children's party fare. It seems that the whole world has a passion for cupcakes these days. Cupcake bakeries are opening across the country. Cookbooks devoted to the art of the cupcake are turning up in bookstores.

Just enough to satisfy a sweet craving, the cupcake is an indulgence of the proper proportions. The cupcake has arrived with more variations on the cake theme than ever.

A satisfying, deep chocolate flavor is presented as a little cake when a cupcake crosses with a brownie. Brownie cupcakes make a deliciously dense, delicious cake with a sweet addition of natural raisins. The recipe comes together quickly in a single pot on the stovetop, an excellent option for quick cleanups.

Top the cupcakes with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or a drizzle of glaze. These are excellent for lunchboxes. For the full cupcake effect, traditional buttercream frosting dresses up the brownie cupcakes for a party.
