RumChata Cupcakes

July 18th, 2012 · 4 Comments

Due to popular demand and my recent obsession with RumChata, I decided to make RumChata cupcakes. Also, I just happened to have all of the ingredients and a night free to make them. Perfect. So everyone I saw over the weekend got a cupcake. I brought them to the Association House fundraiser and all my friends loved them. I mean, they weren’t even that drunk and they were declaring them to be the best cupcake they ever had! Paul Baker thought they tasted kind of like oatmeal cookies. I think it’s the vanilla and cinnamon flavors coming through. Others say they taste like cinnamon toast crunch. So. Yes, definitely make these!

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup RumChata
1 tsp vanilla extract

4 egg whites

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine sugar & butter and beat until fluffy
  • Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, & cinnamon, set aside
  • Mix the RumChata & vanilla together, set aside
  • Alternating, add in the flour mixture and RumChata mixture in to the butter and sugar.
  • Start and end with the flour mixture.
  • In a clean mixing bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form (this will be easiest in an electric mixer)
  • Fold egg whites in to the batter – do not do this in an electric mixer, use a spatula
