Did you know? The first mention of a cake produced in a cup goes all the way back to 1796, in the cookbook, “American Cookery” by Ameila Simmons. The first reference and recipe for an actual “cupcake” is printed in Eliza Leslie’s 1828 cookbook, “Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and Sweetmeats.”
