Chardonnay may be my favorite variety of white wine, but I do have some trouble finishing an entire bottle by myself. These boozy cupcakes are a fun way to incorporate alcohol!
Recipe adapted from Lucinda & Millie
Serving Size: 2 cupcakes (again, great for a home-cooked dinner date!)
Cupcake Ingredients: 5 tbsp unsalted butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 egg, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt, heaping 1/2 cup of flour, 1/4 cup milk
Frosting Ingredients: 2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp cream cheese, 1 1/2 tbsp chardonnay, pinch of salt, 1 cup powdered sugar
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together all the ingredients for the cupcakes and pour the batter into cupcake liners.
2. As the cupcakes bake for 20 minutes, prepare the frosting. Combine all frosting ingredients and whisk together. Set in the refrigerator to harden for frosting.
3. When the cupcakes are done, let them cool slightly and then frost them.
