Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I put together a “lovely” little treat for you and whoever you’re spending this upcoming Tuesday with. My coworkers and family members are the ones getting to devour these awesome cupcakes this week! But of course, these cupcakes were inspired by the holiday.
If you’ve ever been in love, it gets you all jittery and excited, and sometimes you feel drunk….on love. Or maybe, you’ve just eaten these bad boys. With a kick of coffee and a spike of Bailey’s, these are sure to get you going!
Love Drunk Cupcakes
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp instant coffee
***You can find the frosting recipe here.
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter, yogurt and sugar together.
2.) Add the eggs one at a time. Mix in the water and vanilla.
3.) Gradually mix in the dry ingredients.
4.) Fill slightly greased cupcake trays about 1/3 of the way up.
5.) Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Use about 1/3 of the Bailey’s frosting recipe and mix in between 1/2 tsp and 1 tsp of instant coffee (depending on how strong you want the coffee flavor).
1.) After the cupcakes cool, scoop out the center with a melon baller or a teaspoon. Fill the cupcakes with the Bailey’s coffee filling.
2.) If the pieces are still intact, put the scooped out cake on top of the filling.
Frost with the rest of the Bailey’s frosting! If you want, you can melt down white chocolate, dye it red or pink, and pipe out little hearts to sit on top!
Enjoy the drunken love!
