Foodie Friday Champagne/ mimosa cupcakes

It is Foodie Friday!
Unfortunately with so much going on it will be a quick one!
I have to get in there and bake cookies for the fire department field trip in the morning!


Mimosa Cupcake Recipe

•3 cups cake flour

•1/2 tsp salt

•1 tsp baking powder

•1/2 tsp baking soda

•1 cup (2 sticks) butter

•1 cup sugar

•1/2 cup + 2 tbsp frozen orange concentrate

•3 eggs

•3/4 cup plain yogurt

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda and powder and set aside. In a medium sized bowl, cream the butter until smooth then add the sugar and cream together. Once the butter and sugar are creamed add in the orange juice concentrate. Mix in one egg at a time. Add in flour mixture 1/3 at a time. When flour is thoroughly mixed, mix in the yogurt. Batter will be slightly lumpy, but should be smooth kind of like pancake batter. Divide the batter evenly into lined cupcake tins and bake for about 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool
Champagne Syrup

•2 cups champagne

•1 cup powdered sugar

Bring the champagne and powdered sugar to a boil and let them reduce about half way. Don't expect it to get thick. It will be liquidity. Poke holes in the cupcakes and drizzle in the syrup. Let it absorb into the cupcake and add more. Keep adding to taste

*To make champagne cupcakes just use a white cupcake recipe and add the champagne syrup step!

Be sure to stop by and see Gollum for more Foodie Fridays!

Thanks for dropping by Y'all!
