Chocolate Jack Daniel’s Cupcakes
- 2 Cups (10 ounces) all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup (3.75 ounces) coco powder
- 2 cups (14.5 ounces) granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup super strong coffee
- 1/2 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, stir the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- In separate bowl (I use a 4 or 8 cup measuring vessel) combine the eggs, coffee, whiskey, buttermilk and oil.
- Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
- Spoon the mixture into prepared cupcake cups…(I use 4 ounce souffle cups also known as nut and portion cups) I only fill half full and they come right up to the top.
- Bake in preheated oven about 18-20 minutes until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.
- Cool completely.
Dark Chocolate Whiskey Ganache
- 16 ounces good quality dark chocolate 65-72 %, chopped into small pieces 1/4 inch or less.
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey
- place the chocolate in a heat proof bowl and set aside.
- heat heavy cream until just boiling. Pour over chocolate.
- Cover chocolate and cream for 2 minutes to allow chocolate to soften. Uncover and stir with whisk until smooth and silky.
- stir in butter until fully incorporated.
- stir in whiskey until fully incorporated, cool completely.
Dark Chocolate Whiskey Buttercream
- 1 lb. unsalted butter, softened
- 1- 3 ounce package white chocolate, vanilla or cheesecake instant pudding mix
- 2 cups Dark Chocolate Whiskey ganache
- 1/2 cup sifted dark cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- more whiskey to taste
- In stand mixer beat the butter and pudding mix together on medium high speed for 5 minutes or so.
- Turn off, add the ganache, cocoa powder and heavy cream. Beat for another 5 minutes.
- Add powdered sugar a little bit at a time, tasting as you go until it is sweet enough for you then beat on medium high for at least 5 more minutes.
- If it isn’t a strong enough whiskey taste for you add Tablespoon by Tablespoon of whiskey until it is to your liking.Don’t forget to drink while you cook! It makes everything taste better. :)
