These Cinnamon Eggnog & Bourbon Cupcakes are one of a kind! Cinnamon, eggnog and bourbon cake topped with a spice bourbon frosting… WOWEEE!
Our military commissary has stocked three flavors of eggnog right now. Pumpkin, Cinnamon and Gingerbread. The pumpkin tasted just like pumpkin pie, but I knew I didn’t want to bake with it. I’m kinda over pumpkin, ya know? And then I sipped on the cinnamon nog…. and HOLY COW!
I’m not gonna lie. I’m not a fan of the eggnog. But the cinnamon eggnog was SO GOOD! I might even drink an entire quart of it! YUM!
So, then my brain got to churnin… eggnog cupcakes. Yah, that’s typical. But Cinnamon Eggnog cupcakes? And what goes better with eggnog than a little bourbon? So uhm, yeah. Cinnamon Eggnog & Bourbon cupcakes were born!
Don’t worry, these won’t get you drunk… just make you happy!
PS… the liners I used for these cupcakes are probably one of my most favorite liners EVER! They come from my friend, Kellie Sutton of Sutton Gourmet Paper. The thing that makes these liners so amazing is that they keep their color, texture and shape when baking. They DO NOT soak the batter or oils into the liners like others do. So every time you bake with Kellie’s liners, you get a perfectly beautifully wrapped cupcake!
