Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake pans with liners. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add sugars and beat until well combined. Beat in your eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Then beat in vanilla and butter flavoring.
2
Alternate adding your buttermilk, cream soda and dry ingredients in batches until all are well incorporated. Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 full, then bake 15-17 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from the center. Cool completely on wire rack.
3
Buuterscotch Filling: In a double boiler, combine butterscotch chips and heavy cream and stir until completely combined and smooth. Cool to room temperature. Fill a squeeze bottle w/ganache and insert into the center of each cupcake, squeezing until filling begins to overflow.
4
Buttercream Frosting: Cream butter in a large bowl until fluffy. Add in the ganache, vanilla, butter flavoring, and salt and mix until well combined. Beat in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time until reaching the desired consistency. Add milk or cream (I prefer cream) by the tbsp. as needed. Frost cupcakes and top with a drizzle of the butterscotch ganache.
