It’s really hard to go wrong with any combination of Whiskey Girl and baked goods, but these cupcakes are exceptionally delicious. Here’s how it’s done:

Maple Whiskey & Bacon Cupcakes

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of Whiskey Girl Apple + Maple
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavored extract

Cream together the cheese and butter. Stir in the confectioner’s sugar and flavorings. Mix well.

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Whiskey Girl Apple + Maple
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place cupcake liners in each cupcake pan.
  2. Cream the butter or margarine, add the sugar, and continue creaming until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the maple flavoring and whiskey.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture in 3 parts alternately with the milk to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Pour into the prepared liners, 2/3 full.
