Woodchuck Amber Cider Cupcakes 

Recipe by: Staci C. 

Ingredients

For Cupcakes:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup Woodchuck Amber Cider
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

For Frosting:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp. Amber Woodchuck
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

(If frosting feels a little thin just add more powdered sugar to get the texture you like.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Cream butter and sugar for about 5 minutes, then add egg and vanilla
  3. Mix in Woodchuck Amber Cider (This resulted in a weird curdling effect, but don’t worry about it!)
  4. In a different bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
  5. Slowly pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and combine – it’s okay if it’s still contains some little lumps but it should also take on a creamier consistency.
  6. Fill liners 3/4 of the way full and bake for 16-20 minutes
  7. To make the frosting, combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and  Woodchuck Amber Cider together
  8. Slowly add the powdered sugar
