Over the Moon White Ale Cupcakes
So this recipe ABSOLUTELY caught my eye, two of my favs, cupcakes and beer. Made the batter exactly as directed, WHOA! So moist and absolutely delicious. I was leary about the corriander, but DO NOT leave it out! It added a citrusy freshness! I baked mine at 325 for exactly 21 minutes, PERFECT! I also followed the directions for frosting, I changed it up. The original recipe made a very thick, gloppy, grainy frosting, that tasted like straight up powdered sugar and butter, not fit to top these wonderful little cakes. I ended up with this; 1/2 cup butter, 6 cups powdered sugar, juice and zest of 3 medium oranges and about 1/3 cup of the beer. It made a thinner frosting, but it was a perfect topping to the cakes. One other thing, this makes A LOT of frosting. Next time i will cut it in half! Great flavor! I will be making these often!
