A short history
The history of the cupcake goes back to the late 18th and early 19th century. There are two credible explanations for the origin of the name:
The term 'cupcake' is first mentioned in E. Leslie's 'Receipts' of 1828, a time when the tradition of measuring ingredients by weight was giving way in the US to measuring them in cups. According to "Baking in America" by Greg Patent, this was revolutionary because of the tremendous time it saved in the kitchen.
Other sources, drawing on evidence from old cookbooks, say that the word cupcake is derived from the mold the batter is baked in. In the old days, cupcakes were baked in heatproof individual dishes, such as terra cotta teacups.
