I made my friend Tami these Butterbeer Cupcakes for her birthday. I’ve only had butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood one time and it was divine! These cupcakes were really good and were similar to what I remember the butterbeer tasting like. Might have to try some other recipes to taste test.
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup oil
1 cup vanilla creme soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 small box butterscotch instant pudding mix
2 sticks of butter, softened
1/4 cup butterscotch ice cream topping
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon butter extract
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (2 pound) bag powdered sugar
1/4 – 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
additional butterscotch topping for drizzling
1 For the cupcakes, preheat oven to 350. Line 2 muffin pans with paper liners.
2 Beat all cupcake ingredients for about 2 minutes or until combined. Scoop batter into cupcake liners.
3 Bake cupcakes for 15 – 17 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool completely.
4 For the frosting, beat butter, butterscotch topping, brown sugar, butter and vanilla extracts until creamy, about 30 seconds. Gradually add in powdered sugar, adding heavy whipping cream as needed to achieve desired texture.
5 Pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes then drizzle with butterscotch topping.
