White Russian Cupcakes

Do I really need to describe these? White Russian in a cupcake. I’m just gonna go ahead and give you the recipe. Beware this frosting is deadly.

White Russian Cupcakes

Kahlua batter

½ cup soy milk

½ tsp white vinegar

1 ¼ cup flour

1 Tbsp corn starch

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

¼ cup plus 1 Tbsp sugar

3 Tbsp oil

½ tsp vanilla

1 tsp coffee extract

2 Tbsp Kahlua

1 tsp vodka

Cream batter

½ cup soy milk

½ tsp white vinegar

1 cup + 2 Tbsp flour

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar

4 Tbsp oil

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp vodka

White Russian Frosting

1/4 cup Earth Balance

2 Tbsp Kahlua

2 tsp vodka

1 – 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°. Fill cupcake tray with liners.

The trick with this recipe is to make both batters at the same time. That means mix all your wet ingredients and all your dry ingredients for both batches simultaneously and then combine them both together. That means you should be working with four bowls.

Mix soy milk and vinegar and set aside. Combine all the dry ingredients for both batters in two separate bowls. In two more bowls, combine all wet ingredients adding the soy milk mixture last. Mix the wet and dry for the Kahlua batter until there aren’t an noticeable lumps. Divide between the 12 cups. Then mix wet and dry for the creme mixture and fill the cups the remaining 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool on a rack completely.

For the frosting, beat the Earth Balance until smooth. Add the Kahlua and vodka and beat until fully combined. Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and beat until smooth again. Add more powdered sugar as necessary. A note on this, I used the soy free Earth Balance which is not as dense as the regular stuff so I used 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, I imagine only 1 cup will be needed though normally. Also, double the recipe if you want to pipe the frosting.

Eat these suckers (but don’t eat too many)!

    I love using booze in my baking! Booze cupcakes, frostings, tarts & pies, ice creams & sorbets (not to mention all the savory dish possibilities)…you name it, I’ve added liquor to it! I have a girlfriend who simply adores White Russians…perhaps I’ll make her a surprise batch of these cuppies! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Without a doubt, the best cupcakes I have ever eaten.

    Also, I believe my idea of adding more vodka to the icing until it would separate almost instantly was a great success. Who needs icing that looks good? xD
