Drunken German Chocolate Cupcakes
I had been thinking about creating a line of recipes using 512 beers, and this was one of the first creations. A big thanks to Kevin at 512 Brewery for the booze. I call these cupcakes drunken because they contain 4 different types of alcohol: beer, Irish cream, pecan liquor, and bourbon. This cupcake recipe went through Plan A to Plan G. I literally went through an entire 5 lbs of flour in one weekend. The only thing that didn't change was the cake and the maple bourbon pecan. The final cupcake is as follows:512 Cask Pecan Porter Cake filled with coconut, almonds, and Irish Cream topped with chocolate pecan praline liquorbutter cream and a maple bourbon pecan. Here are pictures of various phases of the process.
I'm still haven't released the recipe yet, and I'm not sure that I will, just yet. Maybe.
