Recipe Monday: Corona Cupcakes

20121119-191817.jpg

Right after I found this recipe on Pinterest I knew it was one I’d have to try! And did I! This delectable dessert caters to all my booze loving friends and Ofcourse, myself. The recipe is decently easy and the frosting is seriously heaven; it completely makes the dessert!

Cupcake Ingredients:
3/4 cups butter or margarine
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder (not to be confused with baking soda)
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp lime zest/juice
6 pack of Corona beer
1/4 cup milk

Now, I began by indulging in all things Mexican, just to get in the mood. Enchiladas for dinner, cracked open one of the beers, and began prepping (read: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and lining my cupcake tin with cupcake liners).

Take your flour, baking powder, and salt and whisk together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
In a large mixing bowl, stir your butter and sugar together until smooth, even “fluffy”. Then add the eggs, vanilla, and lime to this concoction.
In a small mixing bowl combine your milk and beer (and be sure to keep stirring so they don’t separate).

Now comes the fun part. Slowly, alternatingly, add your flour mixture and the beer mixture into the butter/egg mixture. Once this is all together and a smooth cupcake-y texture you can start pouring it into your cupcake pan, filling each cup 3/4 of the way. Place cupcakes in the oven and bake for 18 minutes, and your ready to start making your frosting!

Frosting Ingredients:
8oz cream cheese
3 cup of confectioner’s sugar
4 tbsp butter or margarine
2 tbsp lime juice/zest

Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl until a thick, frothy frosting. Make sure to taste test, as this, in my opinion, is the best part of the cupcake.

Okay, time to take out your cupcakes! Take a fork and, while still warm, poke holes in the top of the cupcake and use a pastry brush or spatula to glaze on some more Corona. It really helps soak the flavor into the cupcake. Let them cool fully before frosting!

  4. These look like the best cupcakes ever!

  5. Meanwhile prepare the frosting by combining the butter, caramel glaze, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Add the confectioners’ sugar and mix until almost completely incorporated. Add 2 teaspoons of milk and mix well. Add remaining 1 to 2 teaspoons of milk as needed to bring frosting to piping consistency. Beat frosting on high for 2 minutes to make it light and fluffy. Pipe onto cupcake and sprinkle with cinnamon if desired for decoration.

  6. Just made these cupcakes and they are so good…your instructions were very easy and helpful great job ^_^
