My husband and I wanted to create a recipe for a savory cupcake. Our challenge: when people think of Charleston (SC) what comes to mind? We decided we would recreate what seems to be Charleston’s most famous and often sought after dish, Shrimp and Grits, into the form of a savory cupcake. These savory cakes placed first in their class at a local charity cupcake event. They will make a great addition to your brunch table or special event and are best served warm.
The dough will be very sticky even after all ingredients are combined. This is normal and will produce a moist (not gooey) muffin.
