Kahlua Cupcakes!! by Indiana Baker

White Russian Cupcakes
Makes 12

1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
6 tbsp butter, softened
1 large (med UK) egg & 1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/8 cup vanilla vodka (plain vodka would work too!)
1/4 cup Kahlúa, divided

Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt.  In a large bowl, beat together sugar and butter until fluffy. Add egg and egg white one at a time mixing well after each. Then add vanilla, vodka, and 1/8 cup Kahlúa (half a shot).  Gradually add flour mix in three additions, alternating with milk, ending in flour. Bake 17-20 min or until toothpick comes out clean. While cupcakes are still warm, brush top with remaining Kahlúa. Remove from pan to cool.

Kahlúa Buttercream
1 stick of butter, softened
3 cup powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
3-4 tbsp Kahlúa

Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add salt, then add powdered sugar one cup at a time, beating until combined. Add Kahlúa one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.

To Finish: Garnish with shaved chocolate, sprinkles, or chocolate syrup

Enjoy!! I made them for my knitting group and I had no complaints!  ~Janet aka Indiana Baker
