My sister was making some cupcakes for a co-worker and asked me if I would be interested in joining her for some champagne and cupcakes. Who could turn that down? We unknowingly used a pricey-ish bottle of champagne (leftover from a friend’s wedding), but luckily we were able to have a couple glasses as we were baking. You can use any quality of champagne you wish as long as it leans to the sweeter side! I used white sugar pearls to garnish the cupcakes.

Champagne Cupcakes

Ingredients

    For the Cupcake
  • 2 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 3 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 2/3 c butter
  • 1 1/2 c white sugar
  • 3/4 c champagne
  • 6 egg whites
  • For the Frosting
  • 3 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 3 T champagne

Instructions

    For the Cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Place liners in standard-sized cupcake pan
  3. Cream together butter and sugar until very light and fluffy. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, and then blend into creamed mixture alternately with champagne.
  4. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into batter to lighten it, then fold in remaining egg whites. Pour into prepared pan.
  5. Bake for for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.
  6. For the Frosting
  7. Beat together the sugar and butter, saving the last half cup of sugar to get the consistency you prefer. I usually use all the butter in the recipe because I like my frosting a bit more crusted.
  8. Mix in the vanilla and champagne, add more sugar to thicken.
  9. Pipe on frosting.
