During every holiday we have those go to recipes that everyone expects to see. I am talking about a dessert usually served cold with lots of whipped cream and wonderfully sweet. Now that I have your complete attention how about we take similar ingredients and turn them into a cupcake shape and bake it? Yes, I said cupcake shapes on your holiday table. What could be greater than that? Not many things in my opinion. Grab a napkin because this one can be served without a plate or even a fork!
Baked Ambrosia Cupcakes
5 slices white bread, diced
4 tbs. butter, room temperature
1/4 c. Sugar
2 eggs, beaten
20 oz can fruit cocktail in light syrup drained, and diced
1/4 c. pineapple juice
1/4 c. half&half
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
In a large bowl cream sugar and butter together. Add juice, half and half, eggs and cinnamon then blend to combined. Stir in fruit and bread. Stir to coat bread completely. Add mixture into greased muffin tin. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 35 minutes or until top is brown and juices are bubbling. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving to make removing from the pan easier. Top with whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
