Margarita Cupcake Recipe

1 cups all-purpose flour


1 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
Zest and juice of 1 limes
2 tablespoons tequila
teaspoon vanilla extract
cup buttermilk

To Brush the Cupcakes:


1 to 2 tablespoons tequila
For the Tequila-Lime
Frosting:

1 cup unsalted butter,

at room temperature
2 cups powdered

sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons of

fresh lime juice, to taste


2 tablespoons tequila
Pinch of coarse salt

Instructions:
1.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners;
set aside.
2.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt;
set aside.
3.
In an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the butter and sugar
together until pale, light, and fluffy (about 5 minutes).
4.
Reduce the mixer speed to medium and add the eggs one at at time,
mixing thoroughly after each addition.
5.
Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the lime zest, lime juice, vanilla
extract and tequila. Mix until combined. (The mixture may start to look
curdled at this point, but dont worry, it will all turn out in the end!)
6.
Reduce the mixer speed low. Add the dry ingredients in three batches,
alternating with the buttermilk in two batches. Mix only until just
incorporated, using a rubber spatula to give it one last mix by hand while
scraping the edge of the bowl.
7.
Divide the batter between the muffin cups, filling them about threequarters full. Bake for approximately 25 minutes, rotating the pan at the
halfway point. Cupcakes are done when they are slightly golden and a
toothpick inserted in the center shows only moist crumbs attached,
8.
Allow cupcakes to cool for 5 to 10 minute, and then move to a cooling
rack. Brush the tops of the cupcakes with the 1 to 2 tablespoons of tequila.
Set the cupcakes aside to cool completely before frosting them.
9.
To make the frosting, whip the butter on medium-high speed of an
electric mixer using the whisk attachment for 5 minutes. Reduce the speed
to medium-low, and gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing and
scraping the sides of the bowl until all is incorporated. Mix on medium
speed for about 30 seconds. Add the lime juice, tequila and salt. Mix on
medium-high speed until incorporated and fluffy. Frost cupcakes and
garnish with lime zest, an additional sprinkling of salt and a lime wedge.

Boozy Treat: Rum and Coke


Cupcakes

Rum and Coke Cupcakes:


2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) room temperature
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 cup regular coke (+ another 1/2 cup for basting after they are cooked)
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. dark spiced rum (+ another 4
Tablespoons for basting after cooked)
1 tsp. vanilla

Vanilla Rum Frosting:


1 stick of butter room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. rum
Pre-heat your oven to 350-degrees.
First, whisk your flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder together in a
bowl.

In a separate bowl, or mixer, add your butter and


sugar and beat until light and fluffy.

Next, to your sugar mixture, add both of your


eggs, mixing on low speed until smooth and
combined.

To the egg mixture, add your coke, rum and vanilla. I didnt take any pictures of this step
because quite honestly, it looked disgusting and I didnt want to turn anyone off on this
recipe. Trust me, it is going to curdle, but when you add your dry ingredients, everything
comes together and its fine!
Once you have your curdled mess, slowly start to add your dry ingredients about 1/3 at a
time. Mix with a spoon until all combined and you have a boozy, chocolate batter.
Once theyre cool, its time for the fun part! Mix 1/2 cup coke with 4 Tbsp. rum and then
brush the tops of each cupcake with about 1 Tbsp. of the mixture. I told you these babies
were boozy!

For the frosting


Add 1 stick of butter and your vanilla to your mixer and beat until smooth. Then, slowly add
1 cup of your powdered sugar. Next, mix in your rum then the rest of your powdered sugar.
Beat on a pretty high setting until everything is all fluffy and delicious. If it feels too wet, add
a bit more powdered sugar. If its a little dry, add very small drops of milk until its just
right.

Margarita Cupcake Recipe {Printable}


1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
2/3 cups sugar
3 eggs (room temperature)
1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder


1/2 tsp salt
Zest of two limes
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (I use the two limes I zested) you could substitute
with cup margarita mix (the liquid prepared type)
(Ive made these cupcakes both ways and they were equally delicious)
Beat the butter until pale, then add the sugar. Add one egg at a time, blend until all
incorporated. Then add in flour baking powder and salt, followed by the lime juice or
margarita mix. Then add the zest.
Fill lined cupcake pan with batter 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes.
Makes 12 cupcakes. This recipe easily doubles if needed.
Having your butter at room temperature helps it to beat smooth, and eggs at room
temperature prevent the cake from becoming too dry. (You can easily place the eggs in their
shell in warm water for 2 minutes or take them out of the refrigerator for 30 minutes)
**If you want to make Margarita cupcakes from a box cake mix, substitute the
water for margarita mix, or lime juice and add lime zest.

Margarita Frosting Recipe


1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup shortening
4-5 cups powdered sugar
2 T. Tequila (Use margarita mix to substitute the Tequila and lime juice if you
prefer or want an alcohol free version )
1T. fresh lime juice
Beat butter and shortening until smooth, then add
powdered sugar along with tequila and lime juice or
margarita mix. I added a drop of green and a drop of
yellow food coloring to achieve the light, lime colored
green frosting. Once youve frosted the cupcakes
sprinkle on with coarse salt.

Amaretto Cupcakes:
110g unsalted butter, at room temperature
300g caster sugar
2 large eggs, free-range or organic
125g self-raising flour, sifted
120g plain flour, sifted
125ml semi-skimmed milk, at room temperature
1 tsp amaretto liqueur or almond extract
1 good handful toasted slivered almonds or other decorations or flowers, to decorate
Preheat the oven to 160C (fan) / 180C / 350F / gas mark 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tray with
the appropriate size cupcake cases. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and 180g sugar until
the mixture is pale and smooth, which should take 3-5 minutes using an electric hand mixer. Add
the

eggs,

one

at

time,

mixing

for

few

minutes

after

each

addition.

Combine the two flours in a separate bowl. Put the milk in a jug and add tsp amaretto or
almond extract. Add one-third of the flours to the creamed mixture and beat well. Pour in onethird of the milk and beat again. Repeat these steps until all the flour and the milk have been
added. Carefully spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases, filling them to about two-thirds full.
Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until slightly raised and golden brown. To check they are
cooked, insert a skewer in the centre of the one of the cakes - it should come out clean.
Meanwhile, combine the remaining caster sugar, 125ml water and the remaining amaretto liqueur
or almond extract in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until the sugar melts completely (about 1
minutes); stir to combine. Alternatively heat over a low heat in a saucepan.
Remove the cupcakes

from the oven and leave

in their tins for about 10

minutes before carefully

placing on a wire rack.

While they are still

warm, dip the tops of the cupcakes into the syrup for a couple of seconds. Return to the wire rack
to cool completely.

For the cookie dough layer:


1.
2.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

the mixing bowl.

Assembly:
1.

Layer the cookie dough on the bottom of the prepared 99 baking


pan, pressing down to form the bottom of the brownies.

Layer as many Oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need

3.
Slowly pour the brownie batter on top of the Oreo layer and make sure
it evenly layers on top.
4.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Test with a toothpick: if it comes out clean
the center is done, if not, let the brownies cook 5 minutes more. Let the
brownies cool before serving!
