How to Make Mint Julep Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350. Place 36 liners in cupcake pans.
  2. Whisk salt, baking powder and 1 3/4 cups of the flour.

    Cream butter, sugar, eggs, and extracts in a large mixing bowl until creamy (make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.)

    Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Add the milk and liquors to the batter, then the rest of the flour (1 cup). Mix as little as possible until the batter comes together.
  3. Fill paper lined cupcake pan with large ice cream scoop. Bake for about 18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out of center clean.

    Let cool. Brush tops of cupcakes with some extra bourbon (or whiskey).
  4. FROSTING

    Beat butter until light in color and fluffy. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time until paste like consistency. Add bourbon and crème de menthe and salt. (You can add powdered sugar if needed for frosting consistency.) Frost cupcakes.

    Garnish with fresh mint or chocolate as desired.
