Cookin’ with my Boo…
My pal shutterboo came over for dinner tonight. I made homemade beef and noodles, but the most important thing on the menu was dessert! Thanks to Boo I have been looking through many new food blogs. I came across Bakerella and found a recipe for Bourbon Sweet Potato Cupcakes as I was browsing her site. I had to make them. After all us Southern women do love our bourbon, right? I made the pecans for the top first.
Boy were they delicious. I ate taste tested about 4 or 5 before Boo got here. Then off to the cupcakes….
They smelled super yummy delicious when they came out of the oven! It was all we could do to keep out of them before dinner! After we devoured our dinner we made the icing and glaze for the cupcakes. That pan below of brown bubbly goodness is the beginning of the bourbon glaze. Umm, I believe I am making my mouth water, excuse me while I got eat another….
Here is our finished product!!
Now for the moment of truth…the TASTE TEST!! Mmmm, I think this is the best part of baking goodies. So Boo, what’s the verdict?
It’s a winner!!! Thank you Bakerella for sharing such an amazing recipe!!! One I am sure to use over and over again.
