Vernors Cupcake Recipe!


We were having brunch at Parks and Rec inside the stoic GAR building in downtown Detroit and we saw these and fell in love. We posted the picture and a recipe was posted by facebook fan Butch MacDonald, we also found it here: http://foodfloozie.blogspot.com/2012/10/vernors-cupcakes-for-detroit-tigers.html

Here it is, Detroit Vernors Cupcakes!

Vernors Cupcakes from Parks and Rec Diner in Detroit.


Cupcakes:
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup Vernors
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350F. Line 15 muffin cups with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, brown sugar, salt, and ginger. In a measuring cup, combine the Vernors, butter, vanilla, and eggs; whisk together.

Pour liquid ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir to combine. Divide the batter among the lined cups, and bake for 20 minutes until a tester comes out clean. Let cool completely.

 
Frosting:
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup Trader Joe's cookie butter
3-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
7 tablespoons Vernors

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together the butter and cookie butter. On low speed, beat in the confectioners' sugar; then beat in the Vernors.

Spread frosting over cupcakes.

Makes 15 cupcakes.


Hope you enjoy them and if you made too many, we'll help you finish.
