Toast the holidays with our cupcakes made with real eggnog and topped with whipped eggnog buttercream frosting.
Mixing the dry ingredients with the butter ensures a tender cupcake. The butterfat coats the flour and keeps the glutens from forming. Making sure to mix the batter until just combined also ensures a tender, light cupcake.
The more shallow and wide the bowl you use, the faster the eggnog mixture for the frosting will cool.
The frosting is very delicate with the texture of stiffly whipped cream. Store these cupcakes in the refrigerator until about 2 minutes before serving.
