tequila cupcakes.

so when a girl friend texted me yesterday to tell me she made patron cupcakes and they were good i had to get to googling to find a good recipe for my ski trip next week. i found this one on ehow.com but the patron will definitely have to be replaced with don julio:

what you need:
cupcake liners
1-1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup soft butter
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp orange liqueur (definitely grand marnier)
2 tbsp tequila (don julio)
fresh squeezed lime juice
buttercream or vanilla frosting (+ tsp of lime juice, grand marnier and don julio for frosting)

  1. preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. prepare your cupcake pan with the liners
  3. in a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients first: flour, salt, sugar, baking powder
  4. add the wet ingredients: egg, butter, milk, lime juice, grand marnier, don julio
  5. blend well by hand or mixer (on low speed) and add batter to cupcake pan. bake until cupcakes appear brown or toothpick comes out clean - about 15-20 minutes. do not overcook.
  6. add lime juice, grand marnier and don julio to ready-made buttercream or vanilla frosting. spread frosting after cupcakes have cooled.

sounds interesting, huh? no. it actually sounds kinda gross. i need to find a pina coloda cupcake recipe or something. that sounds a whole lot better than some tequila. but i may just give it a try and see what everyone thinks. you can also check out another patron cupcake recipe over at fiercefoodie.com.

eat and be merry.
