The origins of first cupcake can be traced back to recipe book for "a cake to be baked in small cups" of 1796,  written in American Cookery by Amelia Simmons, where the earliest use of the term Cupcakes could trace in the cook book "Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats," of Eliza Leslie's Recipes cookbook in 1828. 

In the 19th century the muffin tins were widely available everywhere and thus cakes were often baked in the indivisual pottery cups, giving the cakes the name in which shape they are baked in, soon the trend of calling all the rounds cups which are small in size became popular and the name "Cupcake" was originated. 

Also in the nineteenth century, the term "cup cake" was also used to refer a cake whose ingredients were measured by volume, rather than weight, using a standard-sized cup.

When the use of volume measurements became more common in home kitchens, these cupcakes became known as the 1-2-3-4 cake because the recipe called for 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs, 1 cup of milk, and 1 spoonful of baking soda.
