Champagne cupcakes

Have a little bit of champagne leftover from New Year’s? No problem – you can make these fun cupcakes with the bubbly that didn’t get finished. After trying this recipe you might want to save a little on purpose. Enjoy.


2¾ cup all-purpose flour

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

2/3 cup butter, room temperature

1½ cup white sugar

¾ cup champagne

6 egg whites


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 18 muffin cups with non-stick spray or use paper liners.

Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and blend into butter mixture alternately with the champagne.

Fold 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into batter to lighten it, and fold in remaining whites. I used an ice cream scoop to put the batter into the muffin tins to get a pretty uniform size.

Bake at 350 about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Cool completely and frost with favorite frosting (I have frosting recipes on my blog, the one I used here was a buttercream, cream cheese mixture).
