RECIPE: Prosecco Cupcakes | curlsandcuppas

Hello again my lovelies, hope you’re all well ❤ Today I’m going to show you this amazing recipe for Prosecco Cupcakes. It was one of my best friend’s 18th birthday last week, and I took a brief break from my revision – such a sacrifice… – make her a batch of these gorgeous cakes!

Ingredients

For the Cakes

6oz. Self-Raising Flour

1 tsp. Baking Powder

6oz. Caster Sugar

6oz. Butter or Margarine

3 Eggs

100ml. Prosecco

 

Icing

6oz. Icing Sugar

2oz. Butter

Water

50ml. Prosecco

 

Method

  1. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Then add the sugar and butter and beat together into a thick batter.
  2. Next put in the eggs and mix them in. Then add the 100ml of Prosecco and mix it all gently together until there are no lumps and you have a smooth cake mix.
  3. Pop the mix in cake cases in a cupcake tray and pop them in the oven on 180° for about 12-15 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and springy to the touch.
  4. While they’re baking, sieve the icing sugar into another bowl and add the butter in small cubes. Beat until you blend all the butter in and you’re free of lumps.
  5. Then slowly add in the 50ml. of Prosecco and mix it in. If you still need a little more liquid to reduce the thickness, then you can add a little water.
  6. Once the cakes are cooled, I just piped the buttercream in gentle swirls on the top and added some pieces of dried mango for decoration (and because I bloody love it!)
