In September, I started a cupcake adventure. If you haven't read about it yet, you can do so here ***
What could beer possibly have to do with dessert?! Keep reading and find out!
This cupcake recipe interested me because it seemed so strange. You start by boiling some beer with butter and brown sugar (sounds healthy, right?).
You measure out your dry ingredients, including cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
You add the boiled beer potion to the dry ingredients...
and throw in a couple eggs to complete the mixture.
While the cupcakes are baking, you melt together more butter and brown sugar,
and bring it to a boil to make it syrupy.
Mmm. Peanuts. The second half of the equation.
The peanuts get added to the sugar syrup...
and make this delicious praline-like mixture.
Once the beer-batter cupcakes have cooled slightly, each one is hollowed out slightly in the middle to make room for the filling.
Mmm. The perfect treat to take to a football watch-party. Pleases the salt lovers and the sweet lovers in one punch!
Come to Mama!
