My menu consisted of:
Easy Slow-Cooker Jambalaya (This is a keeper!)
Aunt Trish's Salad Dressing
White Russian Cupcakes!!
While everything tasted good, I'm still infatuated over the White Russian Cupcakes! I was NOT disappointed in this glorious dessert. Go ahead, give them a try and let me know what you think!
White Russian Cupcakes
(Makes 12 cupcakes)1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 large egg and 1 egg white
1/2 cup milk
1/8 cup Vodka
1/4 cup Kahlua, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl or in a stand mixer, beat together the sugar and butter until combined. Add egg and egg white, one at a time. Then add the vanilla, Vodka and 1/8 cup of Kahlua. Gradually add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk in two additions, ending with the flour mixture.
Bake 16-19 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a cupcake comes out clean (Do not over bake). While the cupcakes are still warm, brush the tops with the remaining 1/8 cup Kahlua. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
(Recipe modified from original version)1/2 stick of butter, softened
3 oz. of cream cheese
3 cups powdered sugar
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons Kahlua
Beat butter and cream cheese until creamy. Add salt. Add powered sugar 1 cup at a time, beating until combined. Add Kahlua 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach desired consistency.
Frost each cupcake and sprinkle (optional) with shaved chocolate! ENJOY!!
The evening was a great success!
Great company, good food, free-flowing wine, and a sinful dessert!
