Say WHAT?! Yes, its true. I whipped Champagne Cupcakes up on New Years Eve and had to share them with you all because they were incredible! I often cook with wine and beer but never with champagne so I was hesitant about how they would turn out but they were amazing and INCREDIBLY EASY. Better yet, you can pull the flavor of the champagne perfectly when biting into these bad boys but no remnants of the alcohol flavor remain (which is probably for the best when it comes to baked goods). The champagne, along with its flavor, leaves these cupcakes with a slightly crispy outside. I know that sounds odd but just try them…it was a perfect combo of moistness and crispiness that had my husband and I coming back for LOTS more.
