A dash of creativity and a pinch of fun

One of the best things about the Daily Grommet world is the input and interaction we get from all of you! It's especially great when you come back to tell us how the Grommets in your life are doing. That is exactly what Julianne (Juli) Rowland often does, and we love it!

babycakes mini cupcake maker recipes

Here's Juli making cinnamon buns with her Babycakes!

Juli had purchased a teeny cupcake maker and loved it so much that she decided she needed something a little bigger. She found the Babycakes Mini Cupcake Maker on Daily Grommet and it was exactly what she was looking for.  She loves it because it's a time saver, and because of the bite-sized proportions it makes. She suggests the Babycakes for anyone who lives in a small space or only has to cook for a couple people (like college students and newly weds). Juli uses hers as much as she can, and has come up with some  creative, mouth-watering recipes for it. She shares many of them in the Babycakes comments, and we wanted to share some of them with you!

Juli's (baked, not fried) Crab Rangoons

Juli's scrumptious looking mini pecan pies

Mini cheesecake ala Juli!

Crowd pleasing Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cakes

Chicken (or Turkey!) Pot Pie

What a great way to use that leftover Thanksgiving Turkey. Juli likes this recipe because you get crust with every bite!

1 Pie Crust, Chicken or Turkey, 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup, Potatoes, Peas, Corn

To make the filling, mix the turkey, soup, and vegetables together and add salt and pepper to taste. After rolling out the pie crust, cut out pieces to fit into the wells of the Babycakes. Spoon the filling into the wells, and top with crust. Cook for nine minutes.

Mini Meatloafs

One of Juli's favorite things to make in her Babycakes!

1 lb Ground Beef, an Egg, 1/2 cup Salsa, 12 finely ground Saltine Crackers, 1 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese

Leaving the cheese aside, mix everything together in a bowl. Make small round "meatloaf" balls, and place one in each Babycakes well. After cooking for ten minutes, top each meatloaf with cheese, and cook for another two minutes. Juli makes this a meal with peas and mashed potatoes!

Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake (pictured)

The holidays call for parties and lots of finger foods. Juli's family and office friends loved these, and I think your party guests would too!

For the cake crust: 1 package Yellow Cake Mix, 1 Egg, 1 stick butter

Melt the butter, and add it to the cake mix. Add the egg, and mix together. Form small balls (about the size of a large grape) then flatten into the bottom of each well.

For the filling: 1 8oz package of Cream Cheese, 1 15oz can of Pumpkin, 3 Eggs, 1 tsp Vanilla extract, 1 stick butter, 1 16oz bag of Powdered Sugar, 1 tsp Cinnamon and 1 tsp Nutmeg

Melt the butter and mix all ingredients together. Pour the mixture over the crust in each well. Cook for ten minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

    Hey, I just got my babycakes maker, and I was wondering if you could post some of the other recipes you have like the cheesecake and others. My family doesn't have an oven so I would love to know what else I could make with it. Thanks for your help! I'll be trying the meatloaf recipe soon.

  • Danielle Says:

    The Babycakes does seem to inspire a lot of enthusiasm! Here are a couple of Babycakes blogs by our friend Juli and Karen, respectively.



  • Kristin Says:

    Juli you are the best! These are all such great ideas. I was a little hesitant when I bought my BCCM bcause it appeared to have only one use but I was very wrong. Thanks for sharing!

  • Danielle Says:

    @Kristin... Juli is the best, I agree.

    Glad you like your (multifunctional!) Babycakes :)

  • DreChele Says:

    Dear Juli, thank you so much for the recipe...you killed it. Made the meat loaf in a dorm room, and it's awesome.
    Thanks again and keep them coming!

    I've made bagel brushetta bites with fresh mozzarella, fire roasted tomatoes and black olives, brunch bites with tater tots, pepperjack cheese, ham and egg, mini cinni's - refrigerated cinnamon rolls, cut in quarters and iced with the cream cheese and frosting mixed. Going to experiment with pineapple upside down cakes, spring rolls with chicken shrimp and fresh snap peas, stuffed campari tomatoes, stuffed mini peppers, fancy grilled cheese with grape tomatoes and cheddar...this keeps me up at night!!!
