Indulge In {Margarita Cupcakes}

The Drunken Baker has returned! I told you last time I'd be back and I wasn't kidding. This week I was lucky enough to rock out at my 3rd Jimmy Buffet concert. The Tuesday night gathering of Parrot Heads provided the perfect excuse to escape to the beach for a little mini vacay. The relaxing was great, but the best part was that I got a chance to be creative and work without interruptions, oh and engage in my favorite past time, baking. Light and fluffy with a hint of margarita make these the perfect Buffet flavored treat! Like the Hypnotiq Cupcakes, I used my go to white cake, replacing the liquid with margarita.  Ice with a whipped margarita frosting and garnish with lime, these delectable sweets are like a tropical vacation in a cake. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 C butter

  • 1/2 C Margarita

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a muffin pan with paper liners.
    2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
    3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.
    4. Let cool, frost, and garnish!

  1. I can't wait to try these! How many cupcakes does this make?

  2. It should make 24, but I do big scoops of batter so it only made 18. Hope you enjoy them!
