Cupcakes are great, Jack Daniels cupcakes ROCK!!

With the holidays just around the corner and the weather getting a little more nipply, I have found a great way to spice up you boring cupcakes. These would make great gifts to give your neighbors, friends, postman/woman and even your favorite Rock D.J.


The cool thing is you use only 1/2 cup of Jack Daniels so you have all the rest of the bottle to enjoy while your baking.

I hope everyone truly has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Now, get to cookin and don't forget to share!!!

Chocolate J.D. 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.

  1. In a large bowl, stir the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In separate bowl (I use a 4 or 8 cup measuring vessel) combine the eggs, coffee, whiskey, buttermilk and oil.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
  4. 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.
  5. Bake in preheated oven about 18-20 minutes until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.
  6. Cool completely.
