1 1/4 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. sugar
6 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 egg white
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. vodka
2 Tbsp. amaretto
1/2 c. milk
1 stick of butter, softened
3 c. powdered sugar
3-4 Tbsp. amaretto
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Line a cupcake pan with paper liners. Set aside.
To make the cupcakes: In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter.
Add in the egg and egg white, one at a time. Mix between additions.
Add in the vanilla, vodka, and amaretto. Mix.
Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture in 3 additions, alternating with the milk in 2 additions, and ending with the flour mixture.
Scoop the mixture into the cupcake pan until about 3/4 of the way full.
Bake 17-19 minutes. Check with a toothpick to make sure the insides are baked through.
Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. Make sure the cupcakes are cooled completely before frosting.
To make the frosting: Beat the butter until creamy.
Add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, beating until combined.
Add amaretto 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency.
These cupcakes are amazing, and I will be making them again. Definite crowd pleaser.
