I’m not a fan of Mountain Dew, but I tasted a cupcake in Topeka, Kansas that was enough to make me holler, “Ya-Hoo”. By golly, it did seem to tickle my innards- as the slogan claimed. I thought the unusual treat was fantastic and I loved its green color. I’d describe the taste as sparkling with lemon and lime flavors.
When I recently decided to bake cupcakes for a friend’s birthday, I thought I’d try the recipe. Although my cupcakes seemed rather dense, they were still very flavorful and tangy. I’d make them again.
Red Velvet cupcakes seem to be popping up everywhere, so I just had to make a batch. And…I humbly confess, they’re darn good!
Below is the recipe I used, however, I think I should have made fewer cupcakes as mine did not rise to the top. Did I overbeat or was there not enough batter for 30 cupcakes??? Who knows. I also used less food coloring, just because the entire bottle seemed like overkill.
Took two trips to Germany to convert me to a beer drinker (not that I’ve given up wine, mind you). So, when I found this recipe for Boston Lager 25th Anniversary Cupcakes, I was intrigued. Imagine infusing a chocolate dessert with the malty taste and spice of a brew.
