Lemon & Olive Oil Cupcakes

Two accidents Saturday night on MLK Jr. Blvd. were reportedly caused by the same driver. Fayetteville Police Sgt. Craig Stout said the driver did not survive, but that the others involved are expected to recover.

One person was treated at Washington Regional Medical Center for smoke inhalation Monday after a fire damaged a kitchen inside a unit at the Maria H. apartment complex on Melmar Street.

This week’s Flyer recipe is a gluten-free option for cupcake fans. They’re not the most photogenic creations, but according to our resident foodie, “the richness from the olive oil and the sweet zing from the Meyer lemons make up for the cracks, lumps and bumps.”
