These were A-Ma-Zing. Not overly butterscotch-y and that frosting was to die for. So happy I started with this recipe. I had to share this with you, because it would just be mean to keep it to myself.
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup milk
1 cup butterscotch chips, coarsely chopped
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper baking cups in 24 muffin cups
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt.
In a Large bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds on medium speed. Gradually add sugar, scrapping bowl
occasionally. Beat in vanilla and eggs. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, and milk. Beat just until blended. Stir in butterscotch chips. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake 20-25 min until center is done. Cook completely before frosting.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar with a
whisk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Stir in milk.
Return to boiling. Remove from heat and cool 30 min until lukewarm.
Beat in powdered sugar with hand mixer. Frost cupcakes right away or
this will harden. *you can pop it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds if
There you have it. Wonderful and delicious. Also, if you want to resist eating the cupcakes, try the batter before baking. I tried the batter before baking. I almost didn't make cupcakes cause the batter was THAT good! And that frosting... good thing you'll end up with a bit extra. It's great on top of ice cream! After making these and trying everything, it'll be hard to "behave" and only have one!
